Miss New York Wins Crown With Gay Rights Platform
Meet Miss New York 2010, Claire Buffie. Like many beauty queens before her, Claire has selected a platform to run her campaign for Miss America on, only she hasn’t selected a topic that’s as palatable as, say, “breast cancer research” or “education.” No, Claire won her state competition — and is competing for Miss America — on a gay rights platform, calling for equal treatment of gays and lesbians. As Drew Grant writes over at Crushable, this is especially awesome considering most beauty queens are “pigeonholed as the Carrie Prejean anti-gay-sex/pro-secret-porn-tape type.” Claire is the first woman in the pageant’s 100-year history to be campaigning on this issue and it’s a personal one for her; her sister is a lesbian. In this interview with MSNBC, Claire says she isn’t worried that the controversial issue — and her progressive views — will harm her chances at taking the crown. She says the Miss America organization is “looking for a woman who is intelligent and compassionate, and who is working every day diligently in her community to effect positive and lasting change, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.” [Crushable]
