Pageant folks in the south know all about the closetballs – where you come out as a man in the presentation category and then return a hour later as a woman in evening gown and talent.  The transformations are exciting to watch and you really get to appreciate what drag is all about.  Well the 1st Annual Miami Closetball was held last month in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Lashawn Denne Chanel was crown the winner.  Mercedes Monroe was 1st runner up and Jazzlyln Sanchez was 2nd runner up.

I have finish the editing of this video which comes in at just over 2 hours and 5 minutes.  I am authoring the DVD as I write this (this pageant will be on 2 disks) and the entire process will be finished in the next couple of hours.  You can order the dvd via our Shopping Web Page.  I am also going to put up a video of one of the entertainers that was at the pageant – Tiona Love and interpersed through that video you will see the contestants that competed.  The video will be up on our video sharing website: Planet Q TV.

Enjoy the dvd, the preview trailer and this year’s closetball from Miami.

Shae Shae Lareese on Pageant Soup Podcast Show – Episode #34

We were happy to talk to Shae Shae Lareese – the current 2008 Mis USofA classic pageant winner on Episode 34 of the Pageant Soup Podcast Show.  At age 40, Shae Shae came out of retirement to put together a fabulous package to win the crown.

Shae Shae Larees - Episode Number 34

Shae Shae’s given name is Edwared Mcneely. He is 40 yrs old and was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.. The oldest of 4, he moved to the states at the age of 14 to Orlando, Fl to get away from the hurricanes and crime. His dad wanted all of his kids to graduate in the United States to get a better education and to learn proper englis.  Shae Shae graduated from Oak Ridge high school in 1987 and started to work for Walt Disney World as a ticket sales ageant and also as PLUTO.  He started  coming out at the age of 19, sneaking into the gay bars especially the Parliament House.  He met a wonderful entertainer by the name of Angel Sheridan who took him under his wing.  Shae Shae was a back up male dancer for Angel.  After seeing Angel Sheridan win all of these beauty pageants,  he wanted to compete and took off running – he was hooked ever since.  Shae Shae has worked as a female illusionist at the Parliament House, Tracks of Tampa and many other clubs.  Shae Shae started competing in national pageants in 1995 and has completed and placed in the top 5 of Miss Gay US of A pageant, Miss Gay America, Miss National, and Entertainer of the Year.  Currently residing in Laguna Beach, California for the last 4 years, Shae Shae is employed at The Ritz Carlton Hotel as a head server of  a fine dining restaurant.  By far his biggest accomplishment and most rewarding experience was recently capturing the title of Miss GAY USofA CLASSIC pageant which he touts as achieving one of the biggest goals in his life.

We want to congratulate Shae Shae for a fine job and we are proud that she asked Click Click Expose to assist in editing her presentation video for her pageant win.  You can watch the video that won her the presentation category on Planet Q TV or listen to the podcast show at: www.clickclickexpose.com.  Enjoy everyone.
