Recently, Rhode Island LGBT hopefuls flocked to Downtown Providence to take part in the Miss Gay, Mr. Gay and Ms. Lesbian Rhode Island 2014 Pageant. It is a night full of heated competition for a prestigious title that is held for the course of a year. The race was close all night long, but only three could come out on top and reign supreme for the next year.

This year's newly crowned titleholders are:

Ms. Lesbian Rhode Island - Betty Lebesian
Mr. Gay Rhode Island - Anthony Maselli
Miss Gay Rhode Island - Nadia Nyce

Throughout the course of this year, you will see the titleholders at countless events working tirelessly to spread the word of Rhode Island Pride. As we launch the Pride season, we are sure to see a lot more of them around town. If you happen to spot one of them at an event, or even just out in your travels - say hi and introduce yourself! It's a great way to bring the community closer together.
