On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, Manhattan's Hudson Terrace nightclub was the setting for the Miss Gay New York America preliminary pageant to the forthcoming the Miss Gay America Pageant. (Believe it or not, only the second ever in NYC!)
The evening's theme, chosen by Miss Gay New York America 2017 Kelly Ray Shelton, was "Broadway". For the Presentation category, contestants interpreted the theme in their gown, costume and look.
Andora Tetee did her own take. Versus a drag queen on Broadway, she did Broadway on a drag queen! A Manhattan girl, Andora threw the world's most famous intersection up on her head and hit the floor. She later brought the house down with her saucy, perfect and Broadway-ready take on Dolly's "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." Duly impressed, the esteemed panel of judges crowned Andora Tetee Miss Gay New York America 2018.
MGAZINE recently sat down with our busy brand new Miss Gay New York America for a wee Q&A. Nice to have a New Yorker in the Miss Gay America house!
When I was 20 years old one of my coworkers, a guy who used to do drag, suggested I should get in drag to be able to get into bars. And, of course, I was sickening. After that I was addicted to glamour!
