Serving the community for over 35 years!

Miss Gay Arlington

Each year AGLA crowns a new Miss Gay Arlington and also crowns a new Mister & Miss AGLA (which is a honorary community service title).

The 10th annual Miss Gay Arlington pageant will honor Miss Gay Arlington 2019 Deja Diamond Jemaceye during an “Solid Gold” evening. Contestants will compete in four categories: 1) Presentation; 2) Talent; 3) Evening Gown; and 4) On-Stage Question. The winner will be crowned Miss Gay Arlington 2021 and receive a prize package valued at approximately $1,500 – including $1,000 in cash.  It will be held at Freddie’s Beach Bar & Restaurant.  The contestant packet is available at: 2021 Miss Gay Arlington Packet

We will be producing a full-color pageant program.  As in past years, in addition to be distributed at the pageant on June 27th, the program will be electronically distributed following the pageant to those on AGLAs email list.  Individuals, businesses, elected officials, and organizations who wish to place an ad should complete this form: 2021 Miss Gay Arlington Program Ad Form – PDF.  This is an excellent and economically way to support the local LGBTQ community and make your support visible in the community.  Ads are due by June 11, 2021.


Congratulations to Deja Diamond Jemaceye Miss Gay Arlington 2019.
