The third annual Broadway Beauty Pageant, showcasing some of the most talented hotties on the Great White Way, raised the roof at Symphony Space in NYC last night.
Fabulous men from the casts of The Little Mermaid, Wicked, Hair, The Lion King, and Billy Elliot went head-to-head in talent, swimsuit, and interview competitions for the title of Mr. Broadway, all to benefit the Ali Forney Center, which provides housing and other services for homeless GLBT youth.
The amazing Tovah Feldshuh hosted the pageant, and though the winner was ultimately chosen by audience vote, a panel of judges consisting of Charles Busch, Ana Gasteyer, Beth Leavel, and Seth Rudetsky was on hand to make hilarious commentary.
Here are Michael Portantiere’s photos of this joyous event.
