Claire Buffie – Miss NY Competing for LGBT Equality!

A message from Claire Buffie, New York’s representative in the Miss America pageant on January 15th! Ms Buffie is running on a LGBT Equality platform, the first Miss America contestant to do so! We’re very excited that NY is being represented by such a progressive, intelligent woman! We wish her the best in the competition!

Hi friends!  I have shared this good news with many of you, but here it is officially. You have a chance to vote for your favorite Miss America Contestant (I hope me!) to be a Top 15 Finalist at Miss America LIVE! on ABC January 15th at 9pm EST. Not only do I hope to have the great state of New York behind me, but also the entire LGBTQ/A community as I represent the first contestant in 90 years to have a platform about LGBT Equality. To make that happen, I would greatly appreciate if you forwarded this email to your mailing lists to get out the vote.
