National Entertainer of the Year

This contest was created by George Stinson and Ed Lewis, owners of the successful Connection Complex in Louisville, Kentucky. They drew their inspiration from Female Impersonator of the Year, a one-time pageant event held in Houston in 1985, hosted by Ruth Buzzi and Lyle Waggoner, and released as a cable-TV special and home video. The winner of that contest, the late Naomi Sims (Newman Braud), is honored as EOY Emeritus.The headquarters for the contest was also in the Connection.Since 2000 the national event has been used as a fund raising event for the SLS Pride Foundation, Inc., a non profit foundation dedicated to the betterment of diverse cultures.
