This past week, a beauty pageant of an entirely different kind took place in Thailand. The Miss International Queen Pageant is a transgender and transsexual beauty pageant where contestants must have been born male in order to participate. Now in its 8th year, the Miss International Queen Pageant aims to increase visibility and acceptance of transgender and transsexual people. Plus, it’s a great excuse to dress up. This year, 21 contestants from 14 countries journeyed to Pattaya, Thailand, to compete. The winner was Kevin Balot from the Philippines, who took home the $10,000 prize and bragging rights. After the jump, Kevin and some of the other contestants strut their stuff.
