This very gay and ridiculously fun drag pageant is a community supported male and female illusionist event and competition for the honorary title of Miss & Mister Phoenix Gay Pride. The winners of the title represent the Phoenix Pride organization for the following year, raising awareness (and Pride!) for LGBTQ issues and the Phoenix Pride Grants and Scholarships Program. In 2015, the Phoenix Pride organization gave away $30,000 in scholarships to LGBTQ identified college students. There is also Miss & Mister Junior Phoenix Gay Pride for youth ages 14-20.
