Yes, that’s right the Miss’d America Pageant, you read correctly. So, you are probably wondering what this is all about. The contest is a spoof of the true Miss America Pageant, but it takes place one day later. The pretext is that the drag contestants are a day too late to enter the original contest. Therefore, their option is to take part in the Miss’d America Pageant.
And all that for a Good Cause
The first of such pageants took place in 1994. A club hosted it as a spoof of the Miss America Pageant in order to raise money for a local charity. Once again this year The Greater Atlantic City Alliance GLBT and Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa will host this event. The event will take place on Saturday, September 22 at the Event Center. The donations from the event total more than $300 000.00 over the years.
If you wanted to be a contestant, you need to complete a form. As well as submit a 3-minute video showcasing your talent. Finally, these will be reviewed by a panel of people from the entertainment industry. The search for contestants is taking place in New Jersey, as well as in other states along the east coast. Carson Kressley will host the event again this year. Also performing will be the talented miss´d America Dancers and musical guest Frankie Z. Once again, Mark Dahl will write and direct the show.
