Moxie Contin-Rose

My name is Moxie Contin-Rose, I hail from St. Louis, Missouri, and I am proud to be considered as the first ever Miss Gay America Femme. I am a small town

girl with a musical theatre background that has provided me with the skills to lead, to inspire, to spread positivity, to represent professionalism, and to promote inclusivity within our community. As a drag performer, I hold myself to the highest standard within all of these things.


When Covid-19 hit, I knew that this was a turning point in my life. I fell in love with drag during this time.  The artistry inspired me to be a better performer, the icons and legends that came before me pushed me to learn as much as possible, and my self motivation took me on a journey that quickly turned into my dream career. I knew this was what I wanted to do and I had to make it happen for myself. We all start somewhere right? Well during those lockdown days, I took full advantage of the time and did two things every day to keep me going. First, I would make my bed every single morning. Doing this reminded me that I have control of my life. Second, I would do a makeup look. Whether the look was good, simple, complex, or even a rough one, it gave me the chance to at least try something new every day. This was how I learned to paint which helped me find Moxie within myself. Then with due diligence, eventually led me into sewing, body shaping, social media networking and marketing, music making, and more. The reason I share this story is everyone has the potential to make their dreams come true, and it's the driving

force and tenacity I had and have that keeps myself accountable for my art, as well as keeps me pushing myself out of my comfort zone.


Now, I am the show director of 2 successful weekly shows at Rehab Bar and Grill (one of the largest drag bars/venues in STL) as well as multiple others around town. I am absolutely privileged to celebrate this artistry weekly via live vocals, dancing, performance art, and more. I am blessed to be representing AFAB entertainers for those who dance and twirl next to me as well as the upcoming ones. I am finishing up my reign as Miss Pride STL 2023 where I've gotten the chance to do many events, fundraisers, and more celebrating queer art with my sisters, brothers, and nonbinary friends. The experience I've gained from my time in the drag scene is not one I take for granted, and I'm ready to spread my message to other artists like me all over the country. Without those supporting local drag, I would not be where I am today. I am

grateful for the chance to be considered for Miss Gay America Femme 2025.
