The Miss Gay America
This section of the web site
attempts to provide to you, detail of the history of the Miss Gay America
pageant system, including winners, top 10, category award winners and
preliminary of the year winners for each year of competition. While this
section page, remains under construction, we anticipate completion of this
section, during the third quarter 2013.
Nearly thirty-four years ago,
, Norman Jones (a/k/a Norma Kristie), was the first man to be crowned as Miss
Gay America. Through the vision of Jerry Peek, the original owner of the Miss
Gay America Pageant, Norman Jones, Miss Gay America Emeritus,
not only desired to enhance the art of female illusion as a competitor
but also to one day create his mark in history as promoter in the art form.
After relinquishing reign as Miss Gay America 1973, Norman Jones purchased (in
1975) the Miss Gay America pageant, from original owner Jerry Peek, in
hopes of one day growing the pageant system to be the most prestigious and most
respected pageant for female impersonators in the world. In January 2005, L
& T Entertainment (co-owned by Larry Tyger and Terry Eason) purchased the
national pageant system, and currently owns and operates the pageant system.
Many thanks go to Jerry Peek, for his pioneer effort in pageantry
through the art of female impersonation, and to Norman Jones for his 30 years of
dedication and desire to the Miss Gay America pageant.
