As some of you may already know, loyal reader PYT_504 recently won the title of Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen at a pageant in Louisiana. Congrats to PYT! We so proud of you girl!
PYT got the chance to give a speech before the mayor. Her profile photo also won Most Photogenic in the pageant. According to PYT, the pageant honors the history of creole people and their culture in Louisiana.
I'll let PYT give you all the details:
Well the pageant was for creoles in Louisiana. It was based upon knowledge and history within our culture. Also based upon the knowledge and history of the music we listen to here in Louisiana which is called ZYDECO. (zah-dee-co).
It wasnt based upon skin color, hair texture, nor eye color as some people think that is what creole people are supposed to look like. It was not a beauty contest. I don't get down that mess. A festival will be held in my honor and also to honor the Spice and Music culture here in Louisiana. The city it will be held in is Opelousas, LA.
My official title is Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen. The other girl that was in the audience in the 1st pic is the Teen Queen and she is a white girl so having knowledge about the culture is not based on heritage. The festival will be held June 5th - June 8th!!! at our racetrack and casino.
