Transgender beauty may still run for Miss Universe

The Miss Universe Organisation may reverse an earlier decision and allow a transgender woman to enter the Miss Universe Canada pageant.

Jenna Talackova, 23, was born male, leading organisers to disqualify her last month as a finalist in the 61st Miss Universe Canada pageant in May.

The rules of the contest run by Donald Trump’s New York City-based organisation say entrants must be “naturally born” females. The woman underwent a sex change four years ago.

But shortly after Talackova announced a news conference in Los Angeles the Miss Universe Organisation issued a statement saying she can compete “provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions.”
