So, This is What it Takes to be Miss Gay America (Video)


Just published yesterday is RFT's reportage from the Miss Gay America pageant, which overtook the Millenium Hotel downtown last week. It's a delicious read.

The RFT also captured behind-the-scenes video at the pageant, asking contestants what it took to become the top dog in a pageant whose motto is: "Where boys are boys, and female impersonation is an art."

So no, there are no surgical augmentations below the neck for these contestants.

In one man's words:

"So, it's just like what you would see on television, it's not much different, it's just men wearing dresses and portraying the image of a woman."
