Las Vegas's LGBT community this week named a local gay multihyphenate as grand marshal for its Pride celebration September 16: Broadway and reality TV star Josh Strickland.
Strickland lives in Vegas and is one of the stars of Peepshow, the burlesque show at the Planet Hollywood Casino. Strickland also stars on the E! reality show Holly's World with friend and Peepshow star Holly Madison. Strickland previously starred as Tarzan on Broadway, was a finalist on the second season of American Idol, and is currently pursuing a singing career; he's already released two dance singles.
"I feel so honored and privileged to be chosen as the 2011 Pride Celebrity Grand Marshal," the 27-year-old said in a release. "I'm so proud to be a part of the Las Vegas GLBT community, and this year's PRIDE will be the best yet!"
