Juana Change Opposes Inclusion Of Transgender Women In Miss Universe Pageant

386D72D7-70F1-4DDA-944C-95ABDF61BE7DMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manioa Bureau)  – Filipinos take their beauty pageants very seriously — especially women who belong to the Hashtag Babae Ako (#BabaeAko) movement, like Mae Paner, a.k.a. Juana Change.

Paner took to her Twitter account to condemn, in no uncertain terms, the selection of Angela Ponce as Spain’s representative to this year’s Miss Universe Pageant.  The new Miss Universe-Spain made history as the first transgender woman to join the popular international beauty pageant.

Paner said that allowing a contestant who is not “a natural-born” woman is a threat to womanhood and is an insult to the #BabaeAko movement.FF0B4139-713D-48BF-900B-D9F87E819DA7

Paner told The Adobo Chronicles that while she never tried joining a beauty contest, she still feels that allowing transgender contestants significantly reduces the chances of natural-born women to fulfill their lifelong dream of wearing the coveted crown of Miss Universe.
