EXPOSED! INSIDE MALE PAGEANTRY

I just put away the very last piece of pageantry and figured it was time to sit down and write my story. This time last week I was asking, “Why?!” But today I’m just wanting to tell my tale and move on to my next move. It’s taken me a good week to be able to tell about my experience to you readers and to anyone else who is interested in knowing what it’s like to compete for a national level competition after not competing for over a decade. The journey was incredible, humbling and wonderfully long. …

PACKED, LOADED AND DAYTON BOUND!

I head tomorrow to Ohio to compete for the national title of Mr. All American Gent 2013 and man, I’M READY! I’m making this a short one cause time is ticking. My bags are packed, boxes shipped and boarding pass printed. I’m heading to bed early after a shave, shower and sheen… and maybe Lunesta. Sending thoughts of safe travels to my fellow Gents and Goddesses who are traveling on the snowy roads and cold climates. I’m heading through Denver on United Air very early. …

CREATING HOLLYWOOD MAGIC AT JOE BLASCO

What do you get when you cross a room full of anxious students, one shirtless candidate for Mr. All American Gent 2013, eight knowledgeable hands working on his bald head and a jar of Vaseline?! HA! I know what it sounded like but it was SO much more. I arrived to Joe Blasco’s Makeup Training School on Hollywood only a few minutes late blaming that the “dog ate my homework.” You should ALWAYS blame it on the dog. I had spoke to Veronica at the school…

ON THE ROAD TO ALL AMERICAN GENT 2013

Every once in a while I update what’s happening with my pageant run for Mr. All American Gent 2013 on the special place I created for that The Road to All American Gent 2013 Blog but the updates don’t make it here too often. I’ve been very wrapped up in the holidays and found myself working quietly here at the house while people buzz about making waves around town and beyond. My “drag closet” is busting at the seams with costumery projects…

THE FINALITY OF 2012 – PERSONAL THOUGHTS

We just got in from Kiyosaku where we enjoyed our annual Sushi and Sake Oblivion for New Year’s Eve. It just happens to be my 45th birthday tomorrow, as well. Oh, what a joy having your birthday on New Year’s Day you must be thinking. Ah, my dear reader. You’re being silly. After years of repressed youth not only dealing with receiving just one present…

JOE BLASCO – MAKING HOLLYWOOD SHINE

On the ride in I had been checking e-mails and had gotten a generous offer from Mr. Hollywood Make-Up himself, Joe Blasco, about stopping by his make-up school in Hollywood and getting a personal tour from his associate Doug while it was quiet. I’m thankful and blessed to have Joe onboard for my run towards the Mr. All American Gent 2013 contest happening in March. From what started as a need for a few pieces of make-up and brushes has evolved into quite something spectacular. More on that later…

JOIN THE ARMY! #TeamStevenMichael

My graphic artists have made me look like a winner in this one. And when I say “graphic artists” I mean photography by my dearest Tim Courtney, IAM logo by sweet Toddy, with me filling in the rest. It’s amazing what I can learn when I take the time to look it up on YouTube. Thank you Adobe Photoshop! Follow my hopeful journey to becoming the first Mr. All American Gent 2013 at theroadtoaag.blogspot.com and donate if you can! It takes an Army! Join mine.

THE ROAD TO ALL AMERICAN GENT 2013

I’ve written an open letter to friends, followers and fans about working towards becoming the very first Mr. All American Gent and wanted to share it here. If anyone is interested in helping a brother out, any amount of interest is greatly appreciated and will be well used towards the fierce glitz this grown man needs to grab his tiara, err, sash and crown. For your consideration…
