The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and Schultz-Hill Scholarship Foundation are pleased to announce the return of the Atlantic City Miss'd America Pageant to Atlantic City's historic Boardwalk Hall on Saturday, January 21, 2012.
The drag pageant, originally created as a fundraiser, is a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant. The hilarious pageant will star drag queens strutting down the world's most famous runway. The presenting sponsor for this year’s show is Resorts Casino Hotel. Carson Kressley, star of "Dancing with the Stars" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" will once again serve as host, along with special guest star, Martha Wash of The Weather Girls. This promises to be a "can't-miss" gay and lesbian travel activity!
Scheduled to perform is American Idol's Erika Schiff and the Melanie Rice Orchestra. Mark Dahl, manager of LGBT Nightlife for Resorts Atlantic City will serve as writer and producer of the pageant.
The 2011 Miss'd America Pageant raised $30,000 for charity, with over $200,000 in donations to charities since the pageant's inception. For more information, contact Larry Sieg at firstname.lastname@example.org
