She Does Her Little Turn on the Catwalk
Amy Larocca met Akia and Sahriya Baily in Soho recently and discovered that pageant queen and makeup artist Akia is now entering her daughter Sahriya in the contests. Sahriya will get only some blush and bronzer. No teeth whiteners! Check out Sahirya’s excellent walk by watching this week’s Video Look Book.

There She Is, Miss Lez
Tired of boring old beauty contests? Yawning at the notion of world peace? Last week’s seventh annual Miss Lez competition at Luna Lounge was a radical respite. There were swimsuit, interview, talent, and evening-gown portions of the competition, but contestants at straight pageants don’t often endorse the preservation of eclectic queer culture as their platform. Our cameras were there to catch the dancing, the judging, and, of course, the crowning.
