Well, it’s here.
Spain will be sending a dude to compete in the Miss Universe pageant.
Miss Universe Spain crowned a transwoman on Friday, June 29, the first for the beauty pageant.
Angela Ponce, 25, will represent Spain in the upcoming Miss Universe pageant scheduled end of the year. Her win comes as Pride Month comes to a close.
This is not the first time Angela competed in a beauty pageant. She joined Miss World Spain in 2015 but did not win. Mireia Lalaguna, who won the contest, went on to win the Miss World title that year.
Although she lost in 2015, Angela told the Daily Mail that she already felt like a winner when she competed in Miss World Spain.
“I have the regional crown on my head,” Angela said about representing Cadiz at that time.
