For America’s Next Gay Icon
Sick and tired of talent competitions that don’t celebrate and honor fabulous fierceness, gayness and faggotry? Or being considered “too theatrical” is seen as something undesireable? After receiving a “Decade Of Achievement” from the LGBT community and being knighted by the Imperial Court of New York, Sir Ari Gold is on a search to find America’s Next Gay Icon. If you think you have what it takes, bring all your best looks, vocal pyrotechniques, diva antics and your gay A game. No lip-synching allowed! For this talent competition, a wet gay kiss or simulating oral sex won’t get you banned but may actually score you points with the esteemed panel of judges–as long as you got the talent to back it up!
Contestants will be judged based on I-C-O-N: Ingenuity, Chutzpa, Originality & New York Attitude.
The winner of each week is chosen by a combination of 3 scores: judges score, audience score and Ari’s parents score, Sid and Lynn Gold.
The first round already saw 5 incredibly gifted performers with the winner taking home over 1,000 in cash and prizes. The second round already began last week but its not too late to enter for a chance to win $3000 in cash and prizes, a recording contract with Centaur Records for a song released on one of their global compilations and a management contract with NYC’s Goldstar Talent Management.
