A Nashville native and local chef earned the top honor of Miss Gay America 2017.

The prize went to Suzy Wong, who is also known as Chef Arnold Myint, of Suzy Wong's House of Yum.

Suzy beat out dozens of contestants from all over the U.S. at the pageant held in Memphis Sunday.

Suzy is the alter-ego of Chef Myint, who owns P.M. Nashville, Boulevard, and of course, Suzy Wong's.

The Miss Gay America pageant is the world's first and most prestigious female impersonator competition, and it began right here in Nashville in 1972.
