chris "DJ alan" domingo

Chris "Alan" Domingo, lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his dog Stella, and hit cat Snatch (yes he has a twisted sense of humor).  Alan has been in the insurance industry for going on 8 years, and owns Alan Insurance Services in Raleigh NC, he is also a PROUD US Navy Veteran and a Proud Survivor of Addiction going on 13 years sober. 

Alan is the co-founder of Carolina Drag Brunch, which was established 5 years ago with Joshua Gray-Heim, and has helped to build it to one of the largest Drag Brunch companies in NC.  He also goes by Alora Parque when throwing on a wig and heels randomly through the year.

Alan also owns CDB Entertainment LLC - Which is a DJ Company specializing in private events, corporate events, and non-profit events.  Of course he is also a nightclub DJ at times.  Alan believes in supporting non-profits and has served as a volunteer on one of the oldest non-profits in the nation supporting the LGBTQIA+ community for many years, Crape Myrtle Festival.

Alan has been a sponsor to many going for the coveted title for Miss Gay America, and sees the passion and the art behind it and has always wanted to be a part of the MGA Family and last year started the talks with Dextaci about starting a prelim. 

During those talks the community was devastated to learn about the passing of Coti Collins, and he wanted to do something in honor of her, who he considered a friend. Coti in many ways touch his heart so many times, through her kindness, her mentorship, her love for the art, and most importantly her love for everyone regardless of their background.  She was a role model to us all, and her legacy lives through each and every one of us.

As a promoter Alan hopes that Miss Gay Fancy America can show that beauty is not just on the outside, it's mainly on the inside that matters.  This means to him, an individual's ability to show compassion and love for everyone, being a mentor, being a leader, always encouraging people to do their best and lifting those up when they feel they are at their lowest. 

His message to those around him "You only have one life to live, live it to your fullest, without regret, be true to yourself, and when you feel you are at your lowest, remember you are loved and I support you"
