"Winning Miss Gay Arkansas was a moment in my life that I will remember forever. To be a part of such a rich history and amazing legacy is beyond words. I am truly humbled to represent the state of Arkansas as your Miss Gay Arkansas America," Veronica Duvall of Pleasant Plains, Ark., told the packed house at Argenta Community Theater.

Duvall was crowned as the Miss Gay Arkansas America 2012 on Saturday night.

Taking First Alternate was Chloe Jacobs and Second Alternate was Jazmyn Turrelle. It was a night of pageantry, tears and jubilation. With songs ranging from "Mary Poppins" to "Grease" to "Sweet Georgia Brown," the audience was entertained from beginning to end. It was a very close contest with only a few points separating the top five contestants.

Diamond Rose won Male Interview portion of the contest, while Turelle won Solo Talent and Long Talent. Jacobs won the On-Stage Question, and Duvall won the Evening Gown competition and the overall point total, to take the crown.

Miss Gay Arkansas America 2011, Zia D'Yor, gave a stunning, tearful final performance, receiving flowers and hugs from audience members along with a standing ovation. In October, both Duvall and Jacobs will travel to Columbus, Ohio to participate in the Miss Gay America pageant.
