Sexy Photos From The Broadway Beauty Pageant and Miss Lez!
Broadway's finest. And one of them came out as straight!
Monday's Broadway Beauty Pageant, a benefit for the Ali Forney Center, brought out the caring, the sharing, and the chutzpah. Here's a bunch of high-spirited photos documenting the event, some by Gustavo Monroy for Next and others from BroadwayWorld.com.
Me, MC Tovah Feldshuh, Tonya Pinkins, winner Andrew Chappelle, contestant Corey Mach Gustavo Monroy Pinkins, me, Jackie Hoffman. The judges! Tovah! Tovah! Tovah! The Chappelle of love. He will return to Mamma Mia! with a crown, a title, and some nice flowers.
And at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, Murray Hill's Miss LEZ pageant was sapphically delicious. (I judged both contests, naturally. Judging people is my favorite thing to do.)

Fabulous opening act Making Frndz Hunky host Murray Hill Brown Meshugenah -- half-Jew, half-black, all woman Dapper Q had us bow-tied in stitches. The hairiest pussy in town. And she won! A heartfelt goodbye from last year's winner, Drae Campbell Runner-up Choice Cunts wore an ensemble made of tampon boxes and threw used doucherags at the crowd. Loved her -- but I'm sending her my dry-cleaning bill. Bambi Galore got hot for Chocha Libre when she won. We all did! Victory is muy sweet. Chocha libre! Chocha libre!
