The Seventh Annual Broadway Beauty Pageant benefiting the Ali Forney Center (formerly Mr. Broadway) was held last evening at NYU's Skirball Center Of The Performing Arts. I recorded virtually the entire program and will upload an extended video probably during the next week which will also include the Opening Number, the Talent Competition, the Interview Round and other highlights from the event. In this post I'm featuring the Swimsuit Competition which has become quite a creative venture in and of itself in recent years with each contestant arriving in full costume suggesting the Broadway show in which he is currently performing and then stripping down to the best and tiniest swimsuits available from Andrew Christian and Aussiebum.
|Yurel Echezarreta (Mr. Matilda)|
|Paul Heesand Miller (Mr. Mamma Mia)|
|Callan Bergmann (Mr. Silence)|
|Julius C. Carter (Mr. Spider-Man)|
|Matthew Goodrich (Mr. Nance)|
|Orion Griffiths (Mr. Pippin)|
And the winner is ......Orion Griffiths, Mr. Pippin! He's straight, no less!!!
