Lancaster PA Pride Pageant 2020 Participant Application

The Lancaster Pride Pageant is a gender-inclusive drag pageant for contestants who believe in the power and importance of community service. Our pageant winners are more than titleholders. They live and breathe the spirit of pride. They envision a world in which all LGBTQ people are affirmed, respected, and included — free from any discrimination, rejection, or prejudice. They commit their volunteer work, time, and energy to the Lancaster Pride Association’s mission is a celebration of the progress that the local LGBTQ+ community has made toward achieving visibility, acceptance and equality within Lancaster County as an organization, Lancaster Pride is committed to producing a vibrant festival that honors these achievements. We strive to offer engaging programming that best meets the current needs of our population, while evolving to fulfill future needs. We want to educate, collaborate, and build partnerships with our allies, associations, and other organizations that directly support the LGBTQ+ population.

We have combined previously separate and gendered pageant contests, with each titled contest this year open to all performers regardless of gender. Up to three winners will be selected; together, Mx.
