SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Queenly and Miss Black USA announce a new exclusive partnership that will give back to the pageant community.

In the new partnership, all Miss Black USA contestants will have easier access to the essential garments needed to participate through Queenly’s website and app. The partnership will also result in donated sponsorship money that will go directly to a Miss Black USA scholarship.

The partnership has been orchestrated by Queenly CEO Trisha Bantigue and The Miss Black USA Pageant founder Karen Arrington.

Queenly CEO Trisha Bantigue stated about the partnership, “As a female minority founder, I wholeheartedly understand the various struggles of underrepresented communities and so we strive to make sure our company goes out of our way in supporting organizations that uplift these very communities. Miss Black USA has been the epitome of promoting diversity and feminism, by providing a platform where young Black women can thrive and find their true confidence in themselves, in order to later tackle the world. One of our advisors from Andreessen Horowitz’s Cultural Leadership Fund, Megan Holston-Alexander, who was also a former Miss Black USA titleholder, was the one who helped connect us with this incredible organization, and for that, we thank her. Queenly and Miss Black USA are partnering to send a strong message of what women empowerment means when diversity and inclusion is included.”

Karen Arrington is the Founder and CEO of Miss Black USA, a national scholarship pageant that celebrates the achievements of outstanding young women of color through the awarding of scholarships each year.

“We are proud to partner with Queenly, a company committed to pushing the boundaries of what it means to feel beautiful and confident today—that such traits can come in all shades, shapes and sizes,” says Arrington.

The partnership will go live on December 2, 2021 on queenly.com.
