For the first time in years, Saint Lucia will be hosting a gay beauty pageant dubbed Miss Gay Universe, on Friday, December 4.

The Las Vegas-themed pageant will seek to highlight the issue of human rights.

Seven delegates will represent countries around the world. They include: Rubella Belle Jour – Miss Saint Lucia, Sahara West – Miss France, Aaliyah fierce – Miss Brazil , Dae Ja Davenport – Miss Canada, Anousqua Queer – Miss Jamaica, Roxanne Edwards – Miss USA, Sasha Amelia Fierce – Miss Egypt and Dae Ja Davenport – Miss Canada.

Organizer Sharmark Leon told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today (Nov.18) that it will be an eye-opening event and noted that it is also being used to help the contestants build strong self-esteem and self-confidence.

Asked why he decided to host this pageant, Leon said: “I have attended gay pageants years ago and I have always liked pageants; any type of pageant I was drawn to, especially pageants that promote good values.”

While this is the first Miss Gay Universe Pageant in Saint Lucia, there have had a few gay pageants years ago such as Queen of the Bees and Pink Powder Puff, which were both very private.

“My last pageant, which was in 2005, was called After Dark. There were six contestants, held at the Gaiety in Rodney Bay. The reigning queen was Miss Cruella De Ville, the first runner-up was Miss Ursula Clark,” Leon recalled.

Leon recognised that being gay in Saint Lucia is extremely difficult, because many persons are not open to the idea of being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender in society.

Leon said he also hopes that it will empower more persons to come out and be brave about their sexuality.

The pageant will be hosted at the Golden Palm Event Centre which is located behind Super J Rodney Heights. It will commence at 8 p.m. and tickets are $75.

Hair Factory, Lagor and Cherryanne Gilliard are some of the sponsors.

The evening will start off with the opening number/introduction of contestants, lifestyle and fitness in swimsuit, costume a night in Las Vegas, talent and poise and elegance in evening wear and interview segment.

Persons wishing to attend can purchase tickets at Sharmark Designs on Cadet Street and at the United and Strong Headquarters. For more information call 720-6150.

  1. so let me get this straight to those condoning this freedom of sexuality bullish.
    a vagina is used for sexual purposes to urinate and to release fluids. there is no force penetration except it being tight, which is also natural. a pennis for sexual purposes to urinate and to release fluids
    The anus (from Latin anus, meaning "ring, anus", which is from Proto-Indo-European *h₁eh₂no-, meaning "ring") is an opening at the opposite end of an animal's digestive tract from the mouth. Its function is to control the expulsion of feces, unwanted semi-solid matter produced during digestion, which, depending on the type of animal, may include: matter which the animal cannot digest, such as bones;[1] food material after all the nutrients have been extracted, for example cellulose or lignin; ingested matter which would be toxic if it remained in the digestive tract; and dead or excess gut bacteria and other ENDOSYMBIONT. CASE CLOSED!!!!!!!! HYPOCRACY AT ITS BEST WITH DEM SOULS THAT DONT KNOW HOW TO DIRECT THEIR FEELINGS RIGHTFULLY . WEAK ASS MF

  4. it makes no sense trying to change something that doesn't need changing. God'S WORD DOES NOT go back unto Him void. if He SAYS " the days shall be like Sodom and Gomorrah' before HIS appearing then so shall it be. there are many other signs to look out for than focusing only on persons homosexuality or choice of life. there's a saying that goes " there will be surprises in heaven" so the person you least expect to be there will be there. and sometimes you yourself may not make it to heaven. and who is to say that person(s) with these issues are not struggling to get out of the situation that they are in .as much as i agree that the gay vibe is wrong but that's not the only thing that is wrong and i don't think we should go around condemning people. but those who chose to be out in he open bout their sexuality don't go forcing people to accept your madness... and if you not one of those struggling or praying to get out .....the time is at hand when you may not have the chance to ask for forgiveness... so therefore repent and be ye transformed by the word of God

    as a nation "what we accept becomes the norm"

  6. How can a few gay men having fun by taking part in a pageant cause people to froth at the mouth as though in some kind of mania? Justifying homophobia with scriptures or hate devalues our society. Where is tolerance and where is compassion for our fellow man? Homosexuality is not a lifestyle choice!

  8. I think all sin is sin , the person who robs someone has made there selves = to a gay man or woman... It is really not your business about peoples gender preferences if you know what your supposed to do then correct yourself there is also the verse which says "he who has no sin cast the first stone" .I'm pretty sure those guys no right from wrong and obviously people have different beliefs . You don't like it stay out of it don't got to the show . No need to be insulting them .. They are humans as well .
