Krystal Summers came out of pageant retirement to compete in the newest pageant in the USofA Pageants system, and on Sunday night, Nov. 16, at The Round-Up Saloon, she won the title of Miss Gay Fire and Ice USofA.

Miss Gay USofA 2014 Jenna Skyy was on hand to crown Krystal.

Miss Gay Fire and Ice USofA is co-owned by Vanity Storm and Bruce Ragsdale Horton, who also owns Dragon Lady Earring Company in Dallas. Thanks to Vanity and Bruce for providing us with the photo, by Reginald Sanders, of Jenna crowning Krystal.

Drag brunch returns to Dish with Krystal Summers, Jenni P

Krystal Summers, pictured, and Jenni P dish out the camp at Dish’s Drag Brunch

A few weeks about I wrote about Dish’s Sunday drag brunch — two seatings that come with live drag entertainment — and it returns Aug. 7 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. In addition to DJ Paul Paredes, drag divas Krystal Summers and Jenni P will provide the camp along with an excellent meal that includes bottomless mimosas or bloody Marys.

Can’t make it this weekend? Mark your calendars — the next after that is Aug. 21.

Krystal Summers: 'I'm from Laurel, Miss.'

Today I came across the website ImFromDriftwood.com, a site that is working to gather together the stories of individual LGBT people from all over the world.

The site operators say their purpose is to show LGBT teens (and other lonely, isolated LGBT people) that they really aren’t alone, that there are others like them out there in towns big and small, all across the globe.

One of the stories on the site is a video clip of Krystal Summers, the trans actress and entertainer from Dallas who stars in Israel Luna’s film “Ticked-Off Tr***ies With Knives,” talking about growing up in a Southern Baptist home in Laurel, Miss., as “a little girl trapped in a little boy’s body.”

It’s not all weepy and dramatic and emotional. Krystal just talks very plainly about what it’s like to be different. And her story really hits home.
