On Saturday 4 June there will be a bounty of beauties at the Kensington Civic Centre for the fifth Ms Gay Ambassador pageant.
Bianca Schutter, one of the organisers, explained that this glamorous affair is hosted in Kensington because the host and founder of the pageant, Logan McGregor, is from the area and embarked on this project to plough back into the community in which she was raised.

“Logan is an established drag queen, a multiple beauty pageant title holder,” she says.
“She is a former Ms Mardi Gras National, former Ms Gay Western Cape and the reigning Ms Diva South Africa.”
Schutter adds that Ms Gay Ambassador is a role model who embodies the values and morals of adherence to the law of the land.
“We host this event to illustrate fairness and impartiality, a healthy respect for the rights of all people within and outside of the boundaries of the Western Cape and South Africa at large, irrespective of creed or colour, religion or affiliation, gender or age, disability or vulnerability, and the winner is recognised as an ambassador of her community and LGBTI matters.”

The pageant was launched in 2012 when Ms Gay Ambassador Zilin Ayoki Zhang was crowned the first Ms Gay Ambassador.
“The following year Tasharn Vonarmberg took the title,” says Schutter.
Testimony of the high standards of the pageant and the contestants is the fact that both winners of this pageant have gone on to win the Ms Gay Western Cape title which is regarded as one of the most prestigious beauty pageant titles in South Africa, claims Schutter.
“This year, we look forward to seeing an array of female impersonators take to the stage to vie for this title.”

The event promises to provide stunning entertainment by performers including the sensational Manila von Teez, the nationally renowned 3 Divas, local artist and comedian Eugene Matthews and DJ Jerome Davidson (DJ Cool J).
This event is one of the highlights on the gay calendar as well as for the local Kensington community. “This gathering signifies the vision of Ms Gay Ambassador, aligning communities and merging our people into a collective population, ignorant and blind to physical differences and preferences which are the causes of disharmony in our communities,” concludes Schutter.
The event will start at 19:30. Tickets are R50 and will be sold at the door. Refreshments will be on sale.
