Miss Universe Spain 2018, Angela Ponce will be the first transgender to compete in the Miss Universe pageant which will be held on December 17, 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand.
This is a first, although there have been transgenders participating in their home country's preliminary contests. The one who paved the way was Canadian Jenna Talakova who completed in Miss Universe Canada 2012 and finished in the top 12. She filed a lawsuit to participate when they first accepted her and then rejected her once they discovered she was transgender.
Without further ado, Angela Ponce - will be very interesting to see how she does on December 17.
