Balance of change
When we purchased the Miss Gay America pageant system, it was after a lot of thought and consideration. Many people approached us encouraging us to do so. Since February 4th, we have received hundreds of emails and messages asking us what changes, if any, will be made. It is safe to assume that there will be changes, but only after vigilant consideration and intelligent discussion with our advisers.
Since February, we have met a lot of people, and are listening carefully to the concerns being brought forth. Any changes within this prestigious system will be difficult, as it is hard to make everyone happy, but we all must remember that changes we implement are for the betterment of the system and not for individual gain. Surely there will some that disagree with change, but there will always be that. We want people to know that we honestly have our hearts in Miss Gay America 100 percent. This is more than a business to us. We want this to be the most recognizable pageant for female impersonators around the world; not just for us as owners or promoters, but also for contestants that compete for the title of Miss Gay America. We entertain people to invoke thought and emotion. It can give us a platform that can make change in the world.
Some of the changes we have begun to implement are mostly with updating technology with scoring, apps and websites that will help the pageant run more efficiently which will allow us to devote more time to the contestants and continue to develop the Miss Gay America organization in the world of entertainment.
In the next month be on the lookout for an addendum to the rules and regulations that govern the system. This will clarify a few of the questions/concerns which have been asked of both Asia and ourselves. Although we plan on going through the entire list of rules, which currently encompass over 100 pages, and condensing them into a much shorter document for ease of understanding, we feel it is necessary to put this addendum out immediately, so we are all on the same page.
