Prospective Sponsor,

The Miss Gay Oklahoma America Pageant is gearing up to crown the 40th lucky gentleman on July 26th and 27th of 2016 at The Copa and  the Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City. Leading up to the state pageant there will be six preliminary pageants.   These preliminary pageants will qualify a total of twelve contestants that will battle it out for the honor of being crowned Miss Gay Oklahoma America 2017.  The newly crowned Miss Gay Oklahoma America and the first runner-up will go on to compete alongside over fifty other gentlemen from across the country at the 2018 Miss Gay America Pageant.  Producing a high quality pageant is the utmost goal of the Miss Gay Oklahoma Alumni Board.  I am pleased to lead the board in this endeavor.  We are reaching out to those businesses and individuals that would be willing to consider aligning their organization, or name, to assist our team in reaching our goals.  The board, and I, are excited about bringing a fresh, new and improved eye to the structure of our pageant and the event that we produce.  Please take a look at the attached pages that detail the levels of sponsorship that we offer.  Additionally; we will be producing a professional program that will be distributed at both evenings of the pageant.  Any of the members of the alumni board, or any qualified contestant can assist walking you through the sponsorship process.  I appreciate your time and consideration of being a supporter of the 40th Annual Miss Gay Oklahoma America Pageant.

2017 Miss Gay Oklahoma Souvenir Program

We are excited to be producing a souvenir program for the Miss Gay Oklahoma America Pageant. The pageant will be on July 26 and 27th at The Copa  and the Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City.  Miss Gay Oklahoma is a part of the Miss Gay America pageant system.  This system celebrates the art form of female impersonation.  All of the contestants are men that express their art while performing as women.  The Miss Gay America system is the oldest female impersonation system in the United States and is attuned at setting a standard of “Excellence”.  On July 27, we will crown the 40th Miss Gay Oklahoma America.  We would love for you/your business join with us, the Miss Gay Oklahoma Alumni Board, as we venture to raise the bar of pageantry and community in Oklahoma.  Please learn more about our organization at www.missgayoklahoma.com.  This year we will be printing 300+, 8.5”x 11” programs that will include a full color cover (front, back and inside) on 100lb gloss paper.  There will be a minimum of 29 inside pages that will be printed on 80lb gloss paper in black and white+/or color. We hope that you would like to include your business/name in this historic publication.  The programs will be given free of charge to the patrons at the two day pageant.  Any profit made from the production of the programs will be used to produce the state pageant as well as send our two representatives to the Miss Gay America Pageant in New Orleans in October.  This is a great opportunity to promote your business, entertainer, show, pageant, event, contestant or friend.

Helpful hints to ensure ad, artwork and photo acceptance:

Professional contestant promotional photos are strongly encouraged, when possible, as this will enhance the overall quality of your ad
Ads are encouraged to be consistent with the theme of the Miss Gay Oklahoma pageant.
Only crown photos with the “Miss Gay America system” crown will be used. Said crown photo must be with the titleholder wearing the crown.    Ads for other systems may use photos that contain their respective system crown.
Photos that are “cropped” from a “candid” photo are strongly discouraged. (this is primarily because the photo or image will most likely require enlargement, which lessens the image quality)
Photos with “busy backgrounds” are strongly discouraged. A solid background is required as a solid background promotes a direct focus on the image in the photograph.
No photographer logos or other identifying images will be used in the souvenir program.
Images used in ads, must be approved, from the “owner” of the image used. The Miss Gay Oklahoma Alumni Board expressly assumes that ads and images presented for insertion in the Miss Gay Oklahoma Souvenir Program are approved, by the owner of said ad and images, for use in the Miss Gay Oklahoma Souvenir Program.
