Best of the Best?

From Gay Star News A 22-year-old Venezuelan on Saturday night was crowned Miss International Queen in Thailand at the world's biggest beauty pageant for transvestites and transgender women. Isabella Santiago beat 21 other contestants from 18 countries to win the title and 440,000 baht (US$12,500) in prize money in the resort town of Pattaya. The winner can also opt for a free cosmetic procedure, including gender reassignment surgery. Miss Thailand Nitsa Katrahong was named first runner-up and received 150,000 baht (US$4,575) and second runner-up Piyada Inthavong from Laos took home 95,000 baht (US$2,900).

"Beautiful Ohio" Native

Well, not quite.  The winner of this year's "Miss International Queen" pageant in Thailand this year is yet another gorgeous transgender beauty from Brazil.  We have featured pictures of Marcelo Ohio here in Cyrsti's Condo before but why stop a good thing?  The second picture was taken of her getting her hair straightened proving once again you have to pay the price for beauty, judging from the look on her face.

Tanya Maung

Good news for the transgender world, Myanmar, and Tanya Maung. This year, a contestant from Myanmar  (formerly Burma) has entered the "Miss International Queen"  pageant for the first time. "Five years ago I would not have dared to enter," said Tanya Maung, 28, who is studying at Bangkok’s Ramkhamhaeng University. "But now Myanmar has democracy, so I feel free to contest." Personally, I have viewed the pageant as more of a glorified show girl presentation, not one that speaks to the world of new found transgender freedoms.  I love it when I'm wrong-this time!

Is That You Kevin?
