|Her Royal Highness Virginia Slim||Queen Index||Coronation Year 1984|
|The inside story of Her Majesty's rise to fame|
1984 Seattle, 1985 Denver, 1986 San Francisco,
The Early Years (The Ones Without SYBIL).
The Honky Tonk Queen Pageant was originally created in response to a square dance record entitled “Honky Tonk Queen” recorded by two internationally famous callers, Paul Marcum and Elmer Sheffield. Both these callers were at the first convention in Seattle.
The song was such a hit with Miss Virginia Slim from Seattle that she created the Honky Tonk Queen Pageant. She not only created it, she crowned herself Queen!!!!!.What a Woman!!!! And by creating the pageant she established herself as one of the most important Drag Queens in all of Drag Queen history! Was it because she was the first queen? NO! Was it because she won the next year in Denver and the next year in San Francisco? NO! Was it because she was one hell of a lady who will always live in the hearts of all the people who have had the chance to know her? NO! Any one of these would have been more than enough reason for the dear girl to go down in history, but all these reasons were overshadowed by her ultimate claim to fame. By creating the Honky Tonk Queen Pageant, IT WAS THERE FOR SYBIL TO WIN !!!
