March was a busy and productive month. Things are coming together more each day as we prepare for October. We were able to spend some time on the road with Asia, who is both a sweet and talented person. Not only does she get to take in the MGA experience but has to work with all of our questions and requests as well.
As many of you are aware, we travel extensively both personally and for business. One of our stops during our travels for the month was in New York City, where we met with publicist Andy Reynolds of Popular Publicity, who will help boost Miss Gay America's presence and also draw more attention to the preliminaries, contestants, history and excellence. Andy has represented many LGBT businesses and artists including Lady Bunny, Cazwell, and Amanda Lepore.
As we move into April and May, state and regional preliminaries are scheduled just about every weekend. We would like everyone (promoters, contestants, and title holders) to remember that everyone is to be treated fairly and respectfully. Any entertainer who gets up on a stage deserves respect. Any criticism should be constructive and handled appropriately.
We are very approachable and love hearing from everyone. We encourage anyone of you who have questions, concerns, or suggestions to reach out to us via email or phone. We want Miss Gay America to be a great experience for everyone involved in the system. Each of us has a unique role in ensuring MGA remains the premier pageant system. There needs to be excellence in each and every one of us to ensure this.
