August is here, which means only 2 months until the national contest. Everything is slowly falling into place. Michael and I have traveled across the country numerous times, and were able to see many preliminaries first hand. We have found it quite amazing to see the effort both the promoters and the contestants have put into this system. We have a very strong contestant base already for nationals, and with a few more preliminaries still to go, the talent will continue to build.
As we had promised, when we purchased the national pageant back in February, there will not be any significant changes this year with categories in general or how they are scored. You will, however, notice quite significant esthetic changes as well as the overall grandeur. Who knows, perhaps a famous special guest will perform at the revue show.
Throughout the past six months, we have spoken to many forever MGA's on the board, and have collectively decided upon some changes that will ensure Miss Gay America remains the symbol of excellence that it always has been.
This October, there will be some twists and turns, some surprise award winning guests, and finally, a very important announcement about where MGA is heading in future years as well as a possible permanent home, categorical changes and tweeks, new national exposure for the newly crowned winner, and perhaps a newly judged category for MGA 2018. This is one year you don't want to miss!
