After a way too long journey to the midwest, I finally got into the small town of Cedar Rapids to film the 2010 Mr. and Miss Gay International Pageant. The pageant is owned and operated by the legendary Entertainer Dena Cass and is being held at Club Basix for the preliminary night events and at the Piano Bar for finals night. I have to say I like the small intimate setting of Club Basix – the dance floor is a good size for a small pageant with plenty of good room to watch. A small crowd of well wishers from all across the country was on hand to watch the contestants compete. 11 boys and 30 girls entered into the pageant – a tremendous effort by Dena in the first year of reorganizing the international pageant.
Thursday night was the first night of the pageant – preliminary night. Contestants were broken up into groups for evening gown, talent for the ladies and presentation for the guys. Here are some preview videos for you to watch:

Pageant owner Alexus D’Marco Braxton just held here first ever 2010 Miss International Closet Ball Pageant (a prelim to the Miss International Newcomer Pageant to be held in Jackson, MS this June). It was a small and quaint gathering at the Quality Inn Sawgrass Conference Center as Taniyah Dior Dupree was the winner of the pageant. Congratulations to Taniyah for winning the pageant.
Miss International Closet Ball & MBI Pageant
This pageant also was billed as a double crowning with the 2nd runner up being named the Miss Black International pageant winner. That winner was Malaysia Foxx.
Congratulations to both ladies as they won this year’s pageant. Interested in seeing what the contest was about. Purchase the DVD from www.clickclickexpose.com.
