The Amapas Neighborhood Association is pleased to announce that this year’s Drag Derby will be organized and sponsored by SETAC, Puerto Vallarta’s LGBT Community Center.

The ANA founded Drag Derby with local businesses in Amapas over 5 years ago, and it was built into a major event for Puerto Vallarta Gay Pride by Tom Swale, ANA’s President. With Tom’s passing last May, and Drag Derby becoming such a key community-wide event for Pride, it was clear it had grown beyond ANA’s mission of Together, Building a Better Amapas.

SETAC has shared in a portion of the profits of the event each year in partnership with ANA and this year will grow the event with professional event management to be more fun than ever. ANA will stay involved and support the event while allowing the ANA to spend its valuable administrative time on more neighborhood-focused matters like the new Tom Swale Memorial sidewalk nearly completed along highway 200.

SETAC has lots of surprises in store and proceeds will support their many projects including recently bringing PrEP to Puerto Vallarta’s LGBT community. Drag Derby will be held on Friday, May 24 at 6pm at the corner of Olas Altas and Pulpito streets in Puerto Vallarta during Vallarta Gay Pride. For more information please write to SETAC at
