Born and raised in Odessa, Patrick Mikyles is one of four siblings. He and his partner recently relocated from Arlington to Dallas.

Mikyles is the current Mr. Gay Texas USofA — a competition in which men dress and perform as males. The finals were in San Antonio in June. Mikyles was also recently named one of the “100 most influential gay entertainers.” He credits much of his success to mentor and friend Randy Norman (of Randy’s Club Cherries).

You can meet Mikyles at Randy’s Club Cherries on Saturday during a celebration of his title beginning at 11 p.m. More photos below.
