Norman Pride Royalty Pageant

The Norman Pride Royalty Pageant is a gender-inclusive drag pageant for contestants who believe in the power and importance of community service. Our pageant winners are more than title holders. They live and breathe the spirit of pride. They envision a world in which all LGBTQ2SIA+ people are affirmed, respected, and included — free from any discrimination, rejection, or prejudice. They commit their volunteer work, time, and energy to the Norman Pride mission to spread acceptance and awareness of our LGBTQ2SIA+ family in Norman.

This year's Royalty Pageant will take place on January 27th, 2024 from 6-9 pm. Up to two contestants will be selected to reign as Norman Pride Royalty. Tickets will be available for purchase starting on December 11th.
