Dear Formers, Promoters, Contestants, and supporters of Miss Gay America.
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that we are cancelling Miss Gay America 2021.
We will continue with preliminaries to qualify contestants for Miss Gay America 2022 season as they are ready. But this will take the burden off promoters to rush a prelim for this year, due to time constraints or the financial aspect of promoting, and also contestants who have been out of work for months.
We have looked at many options and looking at the current situation we had to evaluate what was best for everyone. The next couple of months are still up in the air with regards to the progression of the COVID-19 virus, but it will definitely affect the health, finances, and employment of everyone involved.
Many preliminaries had to postpone, some cancelled, and some are in limbo. Many people are financially impacted by this pandemic, including ourselves. We feel waiting until October 2021 will give promoters and contestants the chance to rebound from the impact that hit the world.
Mr Gay America which was scheduled in August will be rescheduled for a later date to be determined.
To those who have recovered, and those still fighting the virus, we wish you a quick recovery and have you in our hearts.
Sincerely, Michael and Rob
