We snuck backstage before Miss'd America Pageant in Atlantic City this past weekend and caught a few of the queens getting ready for their performance. The annual night of all nights verifies the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa's title as the premiere LGBT destination in Atlantic City. Mimi Imfurst, one of the most memorable contestants on the acclaimed reality program RuPaul's Drag Race and Season One of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, snatched the crown in a talented pool of contestants. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy standout Carson Kressley sang her win from the hills and the crowd went wild. Local queen Jenna Tall was awarded first runner up and the talented Roxi Starr was anointed second runner up while Miss'd America 2016 Fifi Dubois stood by cheering for this year's contestants. Stasha Storm, Savannah Savonier, Farrah Mascara, Champagne Bubbles, Shi-Queeta-Lee, and ChaCha all gave it their all but Mimi Imfurst ultimately brought down the house with her rendition of "Sweet Transvestite" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Congratulations to all of the contestants.
