Four contestants vied for the titles of Mr. and Miss Capital Pride on Saturday evening at a pageant at Town Danceboutique.
Between the Pride wear, formal wear, talent and question competitions were guest performances by Brandon Biller, Destiny B. Childs, Xavier Bottoms, Regina Jozet Adams, Patti Lovelace and Monet Dupree. Preston J. Adams, competing unopposed, was crowned Mr. Capital Pride 2012 and Alexandra B. Childs beat out her competition to be named Miss Capital Pride 2012.
“It makes me extremely proud to be able to represent our community as a whole,” Childs said. “By having this title, I hope that people can look at me just being myself and that it would encourage people to do the same.”
