6 TEXAS USofA STATE PAGEANTS CANCELLED for THIS YEAR
I’m very sad to announce today that I have CANCELLED Miss Gay Texas USofA Classic, Miss Gay Texas USofA Newcomer , Mr Gay Texas USofA , Mr Gay Texas USofA at Large, Miss Gay Texas USofA at Large and Miss Gay Texas USofA for this year !!!!
The health and safety of our contestants, title holders, promoters, formers and our GREAT fans is the most important issue during this National Pandemic. The Coronavirus Virus is still circulating and people are being infected every day. We don’t know what our near or even long term future will look like !!!!
Contestants that have already qualified this year will remain qualified and compete at the State Pageants in 2021. Promoters that need to schedule their prelims or reschedule their prelims may do so when clubs reopen and we think they will be successful.
I want to thank OUR Texas USofA State Title Holders; Jonathan Demond Barnett, Cyn Queen , Timothy Ky'Ron Jackson , Adonis Dickerson Kyng, Courtney Ann Cooper (Vegas Van Cartier), and Taryn Taylor for working so hard all this year. I am very great full that that have agreed to reign until next year.
I want to thank Jerry Bird for giving me an opportunity 35 years ago to be a promoter for USofA Pageants and his guidance during this. This past month has been very stressful on all of us. I want to thank Joe S Hoselton ( Jenna Skyy) for listening to me, advising me and consoling me when i was sad. I also want to thank Tommie Ross, Michael Hayes, Kelexis Davenport, Terry Kofi Ray, Victor Sanchez (Zayer York), Manny Vega and Kerry Chandler (Kymber DeVine) for listening to me when i was making this important decision. Finally, I want to thank my mother , Annette Hull for the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that I receive from her every day !!!!
WE will be better and stronger in 2021 !! WE will CELEBRATE in 2021 !!!!!! Please Stay Safe !! All my Love, Craig ❤️
