Before her recent Philadelphia concert, married Miss Gay America pageant owners Michael Dutzer and Rob Mansman presented Lady Gaga with the Miss Gay America crown, making her the first ever honorary Miss Gay America in the pageant’s 45 year history.
“We love Gaga for all she’s done for the LGBTQ community,” they said, “Especially our youth, so we thought this would be a great way to honor her for championing self-acceptance, diversity and the beauty in everyone’s mirror.
When told that she was not only the first honorary Miss Gay America, but also the first without a penis, Gaga saucily quipped, “How do you know I don’t have a penis?”
Gaga was also presented with a $5000.00 donation to her Born This Way Foundation.
The Miss Gay America Pageant is the world’s first, longest running, and most prestigious female impersonator competition.
Miss Gay America 2018 happens October 4 – 7, 2017 at the New Orleans Hyatt, where forty contestants from across the U.S. will compete for the Miss Gay America crown.
