There are some who object to the pinkification of breast cancer awareness. The argument goes that the color infantalizes breast cancer patients and detracts from the seriousness of the issue. Those in the antipink camp should try telling that to this year's Glam-a-Thon 2011 Glam Doll Strut: Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye. Taking place along SW Second Street in downtown Fort Lauderdale on Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Glam Doll Strut represents the ultimate pinkification of the breast cancer awareness movement. Participants, referred to lovingly as divas, literally strut through downtown Fort Lauderdale decked out to the nines in fashions the ladies of Sex in the City would envy. Pink is, of course, the color of the day, and the divas not only make the walk in stilettos but they strut their stuff for a panel of judges. The four largest teams will be crowned Queens of Glam-a-Thon 2011. Entry is a $40 donation and will also get you an event T-shirt, a diva swag bag full of fashion goodies, and entry to the Tiki Chic-y party at the Hyatt Pier 66 (2301 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale) from 7 to 10 p.m. the night before that Strut (guests not participating in the Strut can still get into the Tiki Chic-y party with a $10 donation.)
