For the past few years, the Miss'd America pageant was held at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

ATLANTIC CITY — The 2019 Miss’d America drag queen pageant will be held Sept. 21 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance announced Wednesday.

The pageant previously was held at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

“We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to present Miss’d America, which has become such a long-running popular event in the Atlantic City community impacting the LGBTQ community,” said Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Atlantic City.

The pageant will take place 8 p.m. in the Sound Waves theater. Tickets go on sale July 22 through Hard Rock and Ticketmaster.

A portion of proceeds from the event will go to the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, which will distribute them to various LGBTQ charities.
