... A Message from the Pageant Director
When I began competing in 2002, I began with a goal of being the best entertainer I could be. It didn’t take long for me to develop a love for the industry. I am fortunate, now 15 years later, to be a former titleholder of many of the main contest systems today; but I felt like something was missing for me. I started to wonder what the experience would be like as a titleholder, competitor, and spectator if individuals who have been all three built a system from the ground up.
For many years, I have been looking for a way to give back to the community that has given so much to me. It is my great pleasure to present Queen Pageantry System. A system founded by and for competitors. At Queen, we pride ourselves on diversity. We shall have only two divisions, King and Queen. Both divisions are open to all above the age of 21 who identify with either the female (Queen) or male (King) persona. Gender at present or birth shall not matter.
Like many things that I do, I have painstakingly poured over every detail, keeping in mind that the experience is most important. Our team is dedicated to providing a best in class experience for the contestants, spectators, and of course our titleholders. Our Inaugural competition was held in the beautiful city of Indianapolis at the Anthenaeum, November 9th and 10th 2018.
My hope and dream is for Queen Pageantry System to bring drag based competition into the 21st century.
