 I am also excited to announce that we are going to be holding Miss City of Fountains in Kansas City, on Sunday March 23, 2014 at Sidekicks Saloon, with registration beginning at 12:00 with Male Interview to follow shortly thereafter. 

For contestants that didn't qualify at the above preliminaries: Please feel free to join us for City of Fountains; your entry fee will be waived. And for all of you who are still wishing to be a part of this sisterhood, this fabulous legacy; this is the last prelim before MGMA to qualify. Applications will be forthcoming and if you wish to receive one, you may contact any member of the Board or myself at or friend me on Facebook.  

It has been a busy and quite amazing month getting to travel around and meet all of you and get to answer some of your questions. I have been able to go to the Board of Directors with many of your concerns and questions and all will be revealed on the morning of April 10 the first day of the pageant. I can't wait to see what each of you are planning for the MGMA this year. It has truly been a pleasure getting to work with you all and see your talent and creativity. This year should be quite dynamic and entertaining. Don't forget to take a look at the Rules and Regulations of our system, as well as the MGA system. Look at our website and the MGA website to familiarize yourself with our rich history and don't be afraid to ask those who have come before you for help. 

For those who didn't read it on Facebook or in last months  newsletter, the theme of this years MGMA 2014, is "Reach for the Stars". Contestants are to have a silver evening gown with accessories and hair to fit and complete the look.  Former MGMA's are to have gold gowns  with accessories and hair to fit and complete the look.  

I am so looking forward to seeing you all again and working with you soon. And if you have any questions feel free to contact me. I want to make sure that you know and are aware of everything you need to know to be successful. 

In closing, remember to love  a little more, judge a little less and always try to help those coming behind you or those a little less fortunate than yourself. Because you never know when you will need that helping hand.
Miss Gay Missouri America 2013, 
Christa Collins 

2014 has definitely been a busy year! It seems that each Jan, Feb and March we pack in several city
prelims and watch as the contestant base for Miss Gay Missouri America builds, and we see or reigning (in this case Christa Collins) dash around the state from city to city.  I had the pleasure to see Christa in action at Miss River City, Miss St. Louis and Miss Spirt of St Louis.  What an inspiration she has been to watch, and a pleasure to work with throughout this pageant season.  Alas, her reign is coming to an end, and the time to crown a new Miss Gay Missouri is just around the corner.  We will certainly miss working with her as our reigning, but fully expect to have her support as a former!

Attending the preliminaries and watching what the contestants have brought to that stage ignites excitement within me for Miss Gay Missouri America 2014!  I see so much potential headed to the big stage, and wish each of the contestants much success as the place finishing touches on their competition packages.  I remind each contestant the entertaining is a part of your score Miss Gay America, but there are other parts that also make up your score.  Contestants are also judged on their appearance.  Take the time in advance to look over your items (wigs, cloths, shoes and jewelry).  Are they in impeccable condition?

There is one final chance to earn your ticket to our much anticipated state pageant, Miss City of Fountains
on Sunday March 23, 2014 at Sidekicks Saloon in Kansas City.  I hope to attend this final preliminary, an hope to see Kansas City in full force to celebrate this pageant, and the final selection of our qualified contestants.

Supporters of Miss Gay Missouri, get ready for an exciting weekend of entertainment.  We have made a few changes in our lineup for the pageant.  Preliminary nights are being held Thursday and Friday (talent a Thursday, Gown and Solo Talent Friday); and our review show with former Miss Gay Missouri America's will be held after preliminary competition on Friday.  We will also be giving away the preliminary awards during the review show!  Final night will be held Saturday April 12.  All events are being held at the Metropolitan Community Church in St. Louis MO.    We are also accepting advertisements in our award winning souvenir program. You can contact any former Miss Gay Missouri for information on ad rates and sizes.

Looking forward to sharing another successful Miss Gay Missouri America pageant!!
