FOR the first time in the Miss Universes 66-year history, there is a transgender contestant in the competition.
Angela Ponce, who is Miss Spain, will be making history as she takes part in the finals of the beauty pageant in Bangkok, Thailand on Monday.
The pageant changed one of its longstanding policies in 2012, which stated that participants should be naturally born women.
Angela, 27, says that by taking part she hopes to highlight how misunderstood the transgender community is, and she also intends to send a message to Donald Trump.
Angela particularly wants to raise awareness about the high rates of suicide within the community, and said: Who hasn't suffered from prejudice? Who hasn't had to deal with bullying?
The timing of her participation is particularly poignant, as a recent leaked White House document said President Trumps administration is considering blocking transgender people from military service.
The report also said they may push changes to the law to define gender by biological traits at birth.
Angela responded to Trump, who used to own the Miss Universe competition, and said: I always say: having a vagina didn't transform me into a woman. I am a woman, already before birth, because my identity is here [her head.]

Stunning, I tell you, stunning!!!
Beam me up. This place is done.
Beauty contest are mo longer about beauty.
Angelo Ponce, Mr Spain.
Well women there soon will bo NOTHING just for you.
Your victim number just too low.
Homophobes ain’t gonna watch it.
Get ready to prosecute!
One night in Bangkok...
Oughta bought do it for Ms Ponce.
I don’t think anyone even cares about those contests anymore.
It’s spreading into all areas so people better start caring
Given the location, seeing gender confused headcases involved is not surprising.
So apparently Spain doesn’t have any REAL beautiful woman and they put up a man? Go figure. I’m embarrassed for them as a country. No beautiful real woman. So they give the prize to a dude in woman’s clothing.
How effed up is this?
Women be ashamed...men beat you at own game.
Tg women don’t beat out men. SAD.
It reminds me of some newspaper article some years ago trying to convince us that some gay female news person (I haven’t watched TV news in 2 decade so name escape me) was soooo hot.
The emperor is no longer merely naked, he is doing other things and telling us it is raining.
I’m sure President Trump is grateful every day that he got out of that dog and pony show. Who’d have thought anyone born with a dick would be allowed to enter a woman’s beauty contest. Hope the whole shebang goes under.
I’ve never been to spain.
Spain has plenty of beautiful women. They weren’t allowed to win. This freak was ordained to win.
maddow something. I saw her youtube videos following Trump’s inauguration.
I guess Penelope Cruz is chopped liver now
