Default Article about transgender Miss Universe contestant

I don't keep up with beauty pageant news, but this headline caught my eye:
Transgender Miss Universe candidate: publicity stunt or civil rights triumph?
I do think beauty pageants, in general, suck -- and it's probably worse that Donald Trump is in charge of this one. Gawd, I can't stand that man. But the situation does put TG people in the spotlight, and so I hope it does some good.

I'm also not a fan of beauty pageants, but I do like the fact that the issue of transgender people came up in such an event.

Do you guys remember the man that had babies? Transgender guy in Oregon? When he was younger, she was in a beauty contest in Hawaii.
