The Indy Pride Contest has had a long and prosperous legacy. Originally this was a competition to name a Miss Hoosier 250, a queen to represent the annual pride tricycle race. This contest has since held the names Miss Circle City IN Pride, Circle City IN Pride Ambassadors, and Indy Pride Ambassadors. Due to the increasing acceptance of different gender identities and drag performance styles, in 2017 the binary pageant system was dropped and we shifted to become one of the only non-binary drag pageants in the country.
As Pride continues to evolve, the contest was renamed Indy Pride Pageant in 2019! Contestants are able to compete in the catagory in which their stage persona identifies. See more details on the updated categories, scoring, and expectations for participants here: https://indypride.org/
–>Contestants can submit to participate by filling out this online form: https://bit.ly/2TvTVQs <–
Your information will be time stamped and sent to our Indy Pride Pageant Director who will then send you the official registration form and details for the remainder of your submission. **The first three contestants to register under each category will be accepted, and all others will be placed on a waitlist in order of their time stamped submission of this form.**
Boy Gorge and Ryne Stone were our incredible Indy Pride Ambassadors for 2018, and we are excited to see the talent that comes from our community in 2019!
