Miss California Contestants Support Gay Rights

by at . Comments

Never have beauty pageants made so many headlines for reasons other than their bikini bodies.

In the wake of the Carrie Prejean controversy, Shanna Moakler - the director of the Miss California USA pageant - has posed in a new ad supporting gay rights.

The former Miss USA and Playboy centerfold shot a print ad this week in which she slams Proposition 8, the initiative that bans gay marriage in California.

A pair of former Miss California contestants - Raquel Beezley and Tamiko Nash - join Moakler in the poster below.

"I believe Prop 8 lead a campaign of confusion and never made clear what was being asked of the people," Moakler said in a statement. "I find most people have a problem with the word marriage. What I hope for is helping others understand 'civil union' and then one day helping people learn 'marriage' is something not God, not the state or country can solidify, but between two people who love each other."

Thoughts on Moakler's stance?


Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis critize Carrie for supporting NOM and then Moakler turns around and does an add supporting Gay Marriage??? They also overstep their athority and crown the runner up, before Trump announces Carries fate, and end up being wrong. They are both idiots and should be fired. Carrie answered honestly and got persecuted for it. In California it appears you can only speak your mind as long as it goes along with the gay community. What a bunch of hypocrites!


I still have yet to understand how a person or group of people can honestly call themselves a minority when they can choose to be apart of it or not. I mean a real minority can't be entered or left at whim. Wanda Sykes can't be gay and straight whenever she chooses and then claim she is in another minority.


I love it when individuals feel they are so open minded and all they see is one side of the issue, their side. Just because you spit out hate phil doesn't make you right. Kill the Christian, kill the Conservative, kill anyone who doesn't think the way we do. Send them to an Island. If they don't agree with us they must be evil, bigoted, racist, communist, money grubbing, slim.


"People who believe that marriage is a monogamous relationship between a man and a woman should not be permitted to live in American" - One more victory for bigotry and intolerance.


Interrsting... These Miss California contestants were the losers, right? Humm!

I've been friends with Laura for the past ten years – before she was my nanny – and I completely stand by her.

Shanna Moakler [on Laura Boyce, former nanny of Rob Lowe]

She’s soooo f*cking fat! She’s 5′2″ and she’s like 140. She was wearing a sarong to cover her huge big ass.
