The Broadway Beauty Pageant, now in its seventh year, is an annual extravaganza benefiting the Ali Forney Center, NYC's primary housing resource for homeless LGBTQ youth.
The Broadway Beauty Pageant is a beauty contest of sorts, in which male performers from current Broadway shows compete for the coveted title. Celebrity judges and hosts help to guide contestants through the impressive talent portion, interviews, and the swimsuit competition. In the end, the audience casts ballots to determine who will walk away with the crown.
Past winners include Andrew Chapelle (Mr. Mamma Mia 2012), Michael Cusumano (Mr. Chicago 2011), Charlie Williams (Mr. Memphis 2010), Anthony Hollock (Mr. Hair 2009), Marty Thomas (Mr. Xanadu 2008) and Frankie James Grande (Mr. Mamma Mia 2007).
