Amanda won this year’s drag show with his rap of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ Same Love, during the lip-syncing portion. In addition there was a question and answer portion of the competition where judges got to ask various questions from what is a typical day for you like to why he or she thought they should be named Misster UNH. Judges for the drag show were Dean Baker, Rebecca Kitchell; Director of Residential Student Advocacy and Educational Partnerships, and Dante Gennaro Jr. from the World Health Clinic and HIV Equal Campaign.

When asked, Amanda said he should be Misster Unh because he was the only representative of PRIDE in the Drag Show and it was his second year competing for the title. Runner up was awarded to Anita Cocktail (Adam Medford) and Misster Congeniality was awarded to Jessie for raising the most money for AIDS Project New Haven prior to the event.

Gift cards were raffled out as door prizes, and three baskets (sex, beach and movie-themed) were given away to those that donated to the cause. UNH’s 5678 dance team performed along with Common Ground; a UNH band comprised of freshman majoring in music.
