Miss Universe Pageant To Allow Transwomen

NEW YORK -- Transgender women will be allowed to participate in the Miss Universe beauty pageant next year, officials announced Tuesday, a week after they ruled a trail-blazing 23-year-old could vie for the crown this year.

Pageant officials said they are working on the language of the official rule policy change but expected final word to come soon. Trials for next year's Miss Universe pageant begin this summer.

You can read the rest of the story here on The Huffington Post.

This is old news; I began hearing reports about this last week, but I just had a thought about it today when reading the above quoted HuffPost article.

Will the amended Miss Universe rules allowing transwomen to participate in the pageant be all-inclusive? That is, will pre-ops and no-ops, as well as post-ops be included?

Just a thought.


  1. Stana, I understand your question on, allowances of a broader spectrum of the familiar female/woman contestant. It would be wonderful for any rules defining women perhaps only include outward presentation. For me though, I just have to say simply, "One glorious high heeled step at a time"!

    OBTW I'm femulating in Downtown Hartford today (Dee is working), any Idea's?

  2. I know trump is all for it, he likes anyone that fights for what they want and believe in.

  3. A very interesting question, Stana.

  4. It would be nice to be all inclusive, and then may the best girl win. But talk about a big step forward, support comes from the places you would least expect it. I mean Trump, who would have guessed that. But he does support those who speak up and support themselves. Were on a roll girls!

  5. I think Trump just recognizes that his pageant can use any publicity it can get, and if letting trans women compete draws an audience, he's all for it. Pageants have really fallen out of favor. I'm sure he takes a big loss every year.
