Organizers of the Miss’d America drag queen pageant say they’re excited the Miss America Pageant is returning to Atlantic City this year.

The spoof of the real pageant, that was created as a fundraiser for charities, will take place at the House of Blues at Showboat Atlantic City on Sept. 21, less than a week after Miss America is crowned on Sept. 15.

Contestants will be judged in swimsuit, talent, evening gown and the judges’ interviews.

Organizers say they hope the event will boost gay and lesbian travel to Atlantic City.
