We are breaking out, and taking it up a couple notches! Last year, we had an amazing time with our Drag Queen Contest. Such great talent and personalities: Just great people! This year, we are going one step further.
This year will be the first year that YS Pride introduces: YS Pride Royalty! To help promote inclusion, diversity, and equality, we are opening up the contest to all LGBTQ+ who want to look F•A•B•U•L•O•U•S! All dramatic, over-the-top, pride-inspired attire is welcome and desired!
Each contestant must submit a 1-2 minute video, introducing themselves, and explain why they should be the next YS Pride Royalty. Once the competition starts, the contestant videos will be uploaded to the YS Pride FB page, and the public will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite.
