Chad Johnson and Curt Godier (C&C Productions), in conjunction with the owners of Club Krave and Miss Gay Illinois 2014 Akasha Royale, have announced the date and location for this year's Miss Gay Illinois America (MGIA)  pageant to be held at Club Krave (13126 S. Western Ave., Blue Island, Ill.) on Sat., Aug. 8, 2015, at 8 p.m.
MGIA organizers announced last year that the pageant would be switching from a state to a limited regional preliminary  to the Miss Gay America contest. The new residency requirements for potential contestants are defined as: any qualified person whose primary residence (for a minimum of 90 days) is located in the State of Illinois or within the state boundaries of a contiguous state to the State of Illinois (which does not have a state pageant), further defined as Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.  
Founded in 1973, Miss Gay Illinois is among the oldest preliminaries to the storied national female impersonation franchise, now in it’s 44th year.
