PEOPLE’S CHOICE - Gaia International
Gaia International is a pageant designed to promote that being globally focused, kind-hearted and unique is what inherently makes someone beautiful. Deliver a platform that has no public voting and no popularity contests attached. In accordance and differing it from all traditional beauty pageants out there, we offer a task based judging system adjudicated entirely on contestant merit. At Gaia, we welcome contestants equally from all walks of life; male, female, gay, straight, trans, bi, non-binary, tattooed, plus-sized, pierced, drag, young, old, employed or otherwise...we have a wide range of categories to all contestants to choose their own competition journey, to be their own beautiful. create a platform on which to encourage an interactive community focused on compassion, understanding and humility. We hope to inspire contestants to interact with each other across our social media platforms to encourage, to guide and to learn. For Gaia, let it not be said we dragged each other down! Let it be announced loudly, that when it counted, we held each other up.
The Gaia mission is to be your own beautiful. We encourage ANYONE who wishes to be heard in the world, to make a difference, to contribute to the ever-changing notion of what it is to be truly beautiful to join our quest to reinvent the beauty pageant.
We believe that Beauty is in how you approach the world. Beauty is in how you treat each other. Beauty is ... as we say at Gaia, be your own beautiful. Own it! Create it! Define it! and since our inaugural pageant in 2019 we have been blessed with some inspiring, empowering contestants who have definitely sought to own their journey, create their image and to change the way the world sees beautiful. They all advocate proudly as individuals and as representatives of Gaia International through their social media and live events.
With a small dedicated team of individuals we strive to be available to our contestants whenever they require assistance, guidance or encouragement.
As the world changed through COVID 19, Gaia also adapted to enable us to support our current and past delegates. We pride ourselves on what we bring to the world of pageantry; the glitz and glamor, the individuality, the uniqueness, the social justice and the aim to be all inclusive in our pageant system.
Gaia International would be truly honored to be considered for inclusion in the People's Choice Award. We are so proud of our nomination and runner up status for 2019. Thank you.
