The Miss’d America Pageant returned to Atlantic City last weekend after a several-year hiatus but didn’t miss a beat, as nearly 1,200 people filled Boardwalk Hall for the campy competition. The pageant, a parody of the Miss America Pageant that used to be held in Atlantic City, featured seven drag contestants who participated in a string of musical performances and strutted their stuff on stage for evening wear and talent competitions. Host Carson Kressley of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame kept the audience in hysterics, with help from writer/director/producer Robert “Sandy Beach” Hitchen. At the end of the night, Miss Michelle Dupree’s Marilyn Monroe persona and scat performance earned her the title of Miss’d America 2010, with Miss Vanessa Sterling and Miss Dee LaMour coming in as first- and second-runners-up, respectively. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, The Schultz-Hill Scholarship Fund, South Jersey AIDS Alliance, the William Way LGBT Community Center and Broadway Cares-Equity Fights AIDS of New York City.
