An Alternative Beauty Pageant!
The Victorian Secrets Promotions is organising for the fourth time the Miss Gay & Miss Transsexual Australia Beauty Pageant. This will be held on 2 February, 2013 at the Function Centre of Yarraville Community Club, 135 Stephen Street, Yarraville, Victoria.
The theme for this year’s pageant is Colours of Australia, to highlight and celebrate diversity of culture and tradition existing within the Australian community. Miss Gay & Miss Transsexual Australia started as an annual alternative beauty pageant for gay men, cross-dressers, drag queens and transsexuals. The pageant, which started with humble beginnings in 2009, has since grown in proportion and presence not only in Victoria but interstate. This competition embraces diversity in the LGBTI community and provides a safe space for people-like-us (PLUs) to share their beauty and showcase their talents to the general audience. The pageant now sees more nation-wide representatives, and winners from past years have gained exposure from the pageant as they were given opportunities to perform in the many popular clubs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Many are now established personalities and performers. These winners have also been given much exposure in their respective local, national and international media.
The objectives of this event are as follows: to foster better understanding and acceptance of the LGBTI community; to offer a well organised international pageant competition for cross-dressers, drag queens, transgenders and transsexuals in Australia and from around the world; to provide an opportunity and a platform for cross-dressers, drag queens, transgenders and transsexuals to express their creativity and talent in a wider audience; to build friendship and exchange ideas among international lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender/transsexual communities; to support the annual gay celebrations of the Midsumma Festival and Pride March in Melbourne (by parading the candidates and winner during the Pride march).
