She’s the reigning Miss Gay Sweetheart, Iman D’Marco!
From Rogers, Iman is a city preliminary titleholder to the Miss Gay Arkansas America pageant system, where on August 11th she’ll be competing for the title of Miss Gay Arkansas 2018, and her chance to compete at Miss Gay America.
Established in 1972, the Miss Gay Arkansas America Pageant is the oldest preliminary to the Miss Gay America Pageant system, where a young Norma Kristie (Norman Jones), representative of Arkansas, was crowned the first Miss Gay America in 1972. Jones later purchased the national system and operated its vast network of preliminaries for 35 years, and continues to direct the operations of the Miss Gay Arkansas franchise. It is the only drag pageantry system where no female body augmentations or enhancements are permitted.
