It’s been nearly a year since Olivia Gardens and Freddy Prinze Charming became Miss and Mister Phoenix Gay Pride 2011. It’s been a long journey and an eventful year of fundraising and reaching out to the community, both in Phoenix and across the State. Both Olivia and Freddy share their stories from the year and talk about the upcoming Pageant that will determine the Pride Royalty for 2012. They also talk about how they got into doing drag and performance in the first place. After a very busy year, they’re both looking forward to passing the baton and stepping down from their roles.
In the news this week: Proposition 8 was ruled unconstitutional by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, The Susan G. Komen Foundation reverses its controversial decision and there’s been the big JCPenney / Ellen story in the news. We all give our take on these issues and even our audience chimes in.
The Miss and Mister Phoenix Gay Pride Pageant is Saturday, February 25th at 7pm, at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Click here to purchase tickets!
