About the Miss Sobriety Pageant

The Big Apple Roundup Miss Sobriety Pageant is a night of fun, laughter and fellowship between the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Allied members of A.A.  This annual event, held since 2000, is a chance for the newcomer and old-timer alike to enjoy a night of Drag Queens and Kings in friendly competition in service to the fellowship.

Each year Miss Sobriety is chosen by the audience’s popular vote held during the intermissions between segments of the pageant.  The winner of the pageant is an ex-officio of the Big Apple Roundup Committee and is asked by the Big Apple Roundup Committee to host and perform at Big Apple Roundup events throughout their term.  For more information about the responsibilities of Miss Sobriety please review the Big Apple Roundup Bylaws by clicking here.
