Apparently one of the contestants of "RuPaul's Drag Race" is a former Miss Continental Plus (2003). The "Plus" in her title made me curious and I researched and found that there are a WHOLE bunch of pageants for big, beautiful drag queens or female impersonators (whatever terminology floats your boat).....
And check it...they (the producers) appear to be really organized...I mean they have preliminary pageants in different states and everything!
Here's a pic of Miss Mercedes - The current reigning Miss Continental Plus 2008 in all her glory!
If anyone has any more information on when the finals of this pageant are being held or any other plus sized pageant for that matter...please let me know all about it.
