Deva Stated - Volume 5
All of the Forever MGA’s have told me to embrace every moment of my reign because it will pass so quickly; I cannot believe how fast time is moving! I have been fortunate to travel quite a bit prior to beginning prelims and now the marathon begins!
This past weekend I traveled to Hamburger Mary's, St Louis to perform with their incredible cast and administrate my first preliminary; which also happened to be my step down: Miss Gay Heart Of America . Many tears and many smiles as we celebrated my year with David Pardue & Cory Wilson; but the goal was to crown a new queen and qualify two fantastic contestants for the National stage. A heartfelt congrats to your new Miss Gay Heart Of America, Adria Andrews and first alternate Selena T West, both on their way to Miss Gay America 2019. This was a close pageant with both girls bringing their A game! What a talented duo to start our competition season, I am so proud of you !!!!
This weekend I head to NYC for Miss and Mister Gay New York America! I can’t wait to see what the week holds on Broadway! Miss Kelly Ray Shelton will step down and Thomas John will have two new contestants to prepare and guide. As time flies, so will this week as I head back to my home in Columbus, Ohio for our newest regional preliminary Miss Gay Buckeye America with Magic To Do as new promoter Michael Bishop awaits the outcome to see who the first Miss Buckeye America will be. Very excited that both NY & Buckeye are attracting qualified contestants from across the United States!!!!!
As each of you prepare for your own time on the stage, I urge you to be yourself; and pay close attention to those sub categories. Attention to detail creates a winner! Best of luck to everyone and know that I am always just a phone call away.
