Drag Queens and Beauty Queens compares two events that take place every year in Atlantic City: the Miss America pageant and the Miss’d America drag pageant. Examining how femininity is performed at each, it also describes Miss’d America’s ongoing importance to the local gay community from the AIDS crisis to the Rupaul’s Drag Race era.
