Reading Pride Celebration, organization in charge of celebrating the city’s LGBTQ+ Pride festival, has announced Majestee, as this year’s selection of Miss Reading Pride 2020.
The selection occurs after the community hailed Majestee as Miss Reading Pride amid a peaceful Black Trans Lives Matter protest where she performed last Saturday.
Majestee started her drag journey in September 2018 when she was 19. Her first ever performance was at Rainbow Mondays in Reading, PA at Reverb’s concert venue at a Latin night. She is a full throttle Dancing Queen.
Though Magestee is a newer queen, she has recently started her own drag Haus (Haus of Crowne) and has two beautiful upcoming drag daughters. He hopes to support them like she was supported at the beginning of her drag journey.
She is influenced by fierce and wise entertainers, dancing queens, and versatile performers. You can usually see her perform at local night clubs, drag brunches, and local events. Now 21, Magestee says she plans on taking over Pennsylvania and then the world.
“We gathered together for a peaceful protest for BTLM and we heard the crowd clamoring for Majestee to be named Queen of our pride festival. It is very important for us to listen to our community, and therefore, we are honored to crown Majestee as Miss Reading Pride 2020”, said Enrique Castro, Vice President of Reading Pride Celebration.
For the new queen, the opportunity to represent her community is a dream come true.
“With this new title I will have the responsibility to shed light, hope, equality, and unity across my people. I want to make sure that my community is unified and be able to trust me with their voices and opinions so we can make a positive change in this city”, said Majestee.
The crowning will take place during the Reading Virtual Pride Celebration on July 19, 2020.
