Miss New York To Compete For Miss America On LGBT Rights Platform
Last July, Claire Buffie was named Miss New York after competing on the platform "Straight For Equality: Let's Talk." On January 15th, Buffie will be the first-ever Miss America contestant to compete in the name of LGBT rights. Buffie is a board member of NYC P-FLAG and works at the Genius Bar of the Fifth Avenue Apple store. Do I hear the sound of pageant-watching parties being planned all over Chelsea? Count me in!
