THE 46TH ANNUAL MISS FIRE ISLAND
fabulous phantasmagoria of feather, fringes and fishnets,
hair, high heels and highballs
This beauty pageant began in 1966 when a bartender,
Johnny Savoy, re-wrote the Miss America song and the booth was the stage – Charity,
still performing and sexy, was the second Miss Fire Island in1967. A runway was
soon added as well as other categories, in the ‘80’s honoring the older queens
(Mrs. FI) and entertainer contestants.
This year’s event, fabulous as always, was produced
by Sal Piro and hosted by Bella, Ariel Sinclair, and Porsche. Brandon Cutrell
sang the Star Spangled Banner and the aforementioned Miss Fire Island anthem. Credit
also DJs Chuck McTague and Manny Ojeda, specially with
all those lip synched entertainment numbers.
Though carefully organized into many segments: Miss Fire Island, cocktail break, Daywear, cocktail break, Evening wear, yes, Entertainers, more drinks, the combination of the heat, high hair, high heels and highballs blended the participants into a phantasmagoria of feather, fringes and fishnets, and, most of all, extreme beauty and creativity. I would be bluffing if I tried to identify all the entrants, many of whom either live in or frequently visit, plus some who travel far for this renowned event at the Grove which I believe to be the Drag Queen Capitol of the World.
It is impossible for me to individually name them all. So I present them to you as fast as my camera could re-charge…and don’t forget the crowd who added some entertainment of their own
Cherry Grove Honor Guard preceded the event in a stirring, emotional reminder
of the 9th anniversary 9/11
year’s winner, the gorgeous Rene Flaming, shows why she won!
