After DJing my final Fire Island gig of the season Friday night, I stuck around and witnessed the best in show for Long Island trannies, drag queens and cross dressers: THE MISS FIRE ISLAND PAGEANT.

Such an incredible showcase of talent including a Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome Tina!

A plus-sized Lady Gaga!

This psychedelic flower power temptress had me at hello.

Epiphany Get Paid did it up Marilyn Monroe style and started her performance with Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend...

...then seamlessly rolled down her pink dress off and shed her blond wig to become Katy Perry for Waking Up in Vegas.

But Fire Island sweetheart Logan Hardcore (who also worked at the Ice Palace all summer, where the competition took place) won entertainer of the year with her Whitney Houston/Beyonce medley, complete with acrobatic handsprings and splits. You betta work Logan.

PS - I am totally hoping to attend this event next year with the rest of the straight Long Islanders who take the ferry out for the day and get completely blitzed while watching hours of drag performances. Miss Fire Island 2007 Stephanie Stone said it best when she totally me its pretty much a tranny chaser convention.
