The Kronicles of Kirby

             

They say that time flies when you’re having fun…  That must be true because I am definitely having fun and time most certainly is flying.  It’s hard to believe that a month and a half has passed since I was crowned and that I am already writing the second installment of my column.  The past few weeks have been a series of travels, appearances, bookings, and shows.  With each time I appear as Miss Gay America, it feels more and more real and I am filled with pride to be the country’s “Symbol of Excellence” for the year.  I am thankful for the wonderful emails, text messages, and calls of congratulations and well wishes.

My travels began a couple of days after I returned home from the Miss Gay America pageant.  My first appearance as the new Miss Gay America was at The Scorpio Nightclub in Charlotte, NC.  The Miss Gay North Carolina promoters, Brian and Tiffany, welcomed me with open arms and the crowd’s reception was overwhelming.  Even though I had performed on The Scorpio stage many times during my career, it truly was a magical feeling to be announced as Miss Gay America in my home state.

A couple of weeks later, I returned to Columbus, OH where I was invited to be the special guest at The Belvedere Vodka Red launch party.  A special thanks goes out to Sam Schisler, Union Café, and Axis Nightclub for their warm hospitality.  It was a joy getting to spend some time with Miss Gay Ohio, Deva Station and many other local Columbus celebrities.  I couldn’t have been treated any nicer and I am grateful for such a wonderful time.

The following week took me to three great cities.  Baltimore, MD was first on the list.  Miss Gay Maryland promoter Roger Dimick and Hippo show director Josie really went out of their way to show me a great time.  It was a blast performing with Miss Gay Maryland America Chi Chi Ray Colby,  my 3rd Alternate,  Araya Sparxx, former top ten finalist Sue Nami, Miss Gay America 2002 Sabrina White and once again, Miss Gay Ohio America, Deva Station.  I’m beginning to think that he may be stalking me.  LOL … just kidding.  The next night I travelled to Washington, DC to perform at Ziegfeld’s with Patti Lovelace and The Ladies of Illusion showcast.  A big thank you goes out to my DC promoter Robert York and Ziegfeld’s manager, Jon Parks for taking care of me.  After a late night, I headed to Richmond, VA where I performed at Godfrey’s famous drag brunch and then rode home with my good sister/Miss Gay America 2011, Coti Collins.

Next week, I travel to Memphis, TN for my orientation weekend with Larry and Terry.  I am excited and eager to learn what is expected of me as Miss Gay America as I prepare to travel the country in the upcoming pageant season.  While in Memphis, I will also be special guest at the Miss Blues City America pageant, a preliminary to Miss Gay Tennessee.  I am confident that it will be a rewarding weekend both in getting to know Larry and Terry a little better, while gaining a wealth of knowledge in rules, duties, and codes of conduct.

During my travels, and with the holidays amongst us and preparations in full swing, I have found myself taking time to reflect on the blessings in my life and the things that I am truly thankful for.  The things that matter most to me are not worldly possessions, but rather the friendships, relationships, and people that make life rewarding.  So with all the shopping, and gift giving, and parties, I urge each of you to be thankful for the people in your life and spend time with those who love you and whom you love in return.

Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays!!!

Kirby

                                         A New Beginning…

 It is difficult to believe that the holidays are upon us. We wish all a great holiday season and we hope that you take time to enjoy the good things that the holiday season has to offer. There is so much commercialism that is associated with the holiday season but taking time to enjoy the beauty of the season, aside from the madness of the season, is certainly worthwhile.  While many of you have been recovering from an incredible week of pageantry, we have been busily preparing for next pageant season. We have received promotional photo’s of Miss Gay America 2012 Kirby Kolby and we are in the selection process now… then to go to print with the photo’s. Kirby has already been traveling and is getting ready for the upcoming pageant season. We will have our annual retreat with Kirby, late next week, and we are so looking forward to getting to know Kirby, plus preparing her for her administrative role as Miss Gay America. There is incredible potential for this to be another amazing year for the Miss Gay America pageant system. There are many new inquiries about new direct preliminary pageants and lots of interest from potential contestants.  Customarily, January 1 will breathe motivation to both contestants and promoters, in preparation for the next pageant season. And by the turn of the calendar, Miss Gay America 2012 Kirby Kolby will be more prepared to fulfill the role as administrator. We look forward to an incredible pageant season and look forward to watching Miss Gay America 2012 Kirby Kolby having an incredible year. Your continued support of this pageant system is amazing and we are much appreciative. The legacy of former Miss Gay  America titleholders is very strong and based on what we have seen thus far, Kirby Kolby will make her sisters proud that she has worked so hard to preserve the legacy they have set before them. Again we hope that each of you have an incredible holiday season and we look forward to working with you next year, as we begin the Miss Gay America 2013 pageant season.

 Until next time....

 Larry and Terry
