Integrity Without Compromise…
Seemingly, this national office spends much more time enforcing rules and regulation of this pageant system than any other tasks. Thankfully, the rules and regulations exist and are transparent. If one will simply read, re-read and then read again, the rules and regulations of this pageant system, more often than not, knowing what to do and when to do it are a much easier task than otherwise. Because this is a competition, there must be rules and regulation. As owners of this national pageant system, enforcing the rules and regulations are easy, especially when personalities are removed. We have issued suspension against many that we love as friends. The frustrating thing is that each and every time that we have had to deal with any negative issues, it is most often because someone did not think with the best interest of the pageant system in mind. When it is all said and done, our primary objective is to ensure that the contestants received a fair pageant. Then finishing in a close second is our efforts of ensuring that all who are involved with this pageant system, follow suit with the rules that apply to whatever capacity for which they are involved, which correlates with our efforts to ensure that the contestants receive a fair pageant experience.
While some may disagree with some of the decisions that come from this national office, we have always made every effort to preserve the integrity that the L & T Entertainment administration is known for. Our commitment to the supporters of this pageant system is to always maintain a high level of integrity in all aspects of this pageant system. We address issues as we know about them but we are not so foolish to think that there are not issues that some may try to “sweep under the rug”. But, our experience is that more often than not, “it all comes out in the wash”. We admonish all to let us know if or when regulation is violated, when such violation occurs rather than at a future time when it appears that the only reason we are informed of a certain issue at a future time is when there may be an “axe to grind”. We value the many friendships that have been made over the last 11 years of promotion of the incredible legacy that we call Miss Gay America but first and foremost, our obligation to those who invest in this pageant system it to preserve and strive to strengthen the integrity of this pageant system!
As always, we are committed to EXCELLENCE!
