EMORY STARR

Emory is loved by many all across our great state. Justin got his start in female impersonation in 2003 while attending college at Johnston and Wales University in Charleston, SC. He went on to earn an Associate’s degree in Baking and Pastry Arts and also a Bachelor’s degree in Food Service Management.
Emory is known for her bubbly personality and her fun stage presence. She loves to give many illusions such as Katy Perry and Elvira, which was her talent the year she won Miss Gay NC America. After her joyous reign as Miss Gay NC America, she went on to capture the titles of Miss Gay South East America 2011 and Miss Gay Mid East America 2012. Thus far, Emory is the only person in NC history to capture the title of Miss Scorpio and Miss Gay NC America in the same year.
