Britney coming to Castro, in wax

Pop diva Britney Spears is coming to San Francisco’s Castro gayborhood after all.

In wax form, anyway.

The Wax Museum at Fisherman’s Wharf has placed the wax Britney in the window of the non-profit Under One Roof, 518 Castro Street. She’llĀ  be there through Sunday, March 27.

The retail shop, which distributed a total of about $15,000 to 24 HIV/AIDS organizations last year, urges fans to bring a camera and get their picture taken with Wax Britney. A donation of $5 is suggested.

From 6 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 25, the shop will host a Britney look-alike contest, complete with celebrity judges.

Human Britney had been scheduled to perform in the Castro Sunday, but that show’s been moved to Bill Graham Civic Auditorium due to rain forecasts.

Though most of the money Under One Roof raises goes to pay overhead, the group pledges Britney-related funds will go directly to their agencies.
