What's Happening Central Florida

The Miss Large and Lovely Pageant was held this past week at Parliament House in Orlando! Quite a few talented queens competed for the crown. I’d like to give a shoutout to Dorae Saunders for a wonderful year and also one to Nicky Monet who won the pageant! Congratulations. Quite a few pageants are still coming up this spring so I will keep my eyes open and let you know how they turn out. Lots of love to you all!
