Hi, all! Last weekend, we headed out to Cherry Grove to again attend the annual drag pageant known as Miss Fire Island. MFI is the culmination of the entire season of drag performances and campaigning, and it’s considered the Cherry Grove social event of the season! Though it is usually a million degrees and sunny, this year, the day was coolish and a little cloudy, which was perfect for both the ladies and the audience. I’ll be picking glitter out of my eyebrows for a month, but it is always one of my favorite days of the whole year, and this year was no exception!
Our hosts, Ariel Sinclair, Porsche, and Logan Hardcore, were wonderful as always, the crowd was enthusiastic, and a good time was had by all.
Congratulations to the winners!

As usual, I took a million photos, but I’m happiest with my closeups. Some of my faves are below. If you wish, you can see the whole set on Flickr.
