●REAL QUEENS FIX EACH OTHER'S CROWNS
“I am very happy that a trans-woman is now candidate for Miss Universe and I don’t see anything wrong with it. If she identifies as a woman, if she feels like a woman, then she should be allowed to join a pageant for women regardless of the body parts assigned to her at birth,” Laura firmly pronounced.

Laura Lehmann, Miss World Philippines 2017, is happy for the triumph of the newest queen. The 23-year-old beauty queen-host believes that there is nothing wrong crowning a transgender woman as the Miss Universe Spain 2018.

Moreover, Laura emphasizes that this marks as a big step for the LGBT Community to their fight for equality.

“Who are we to stop her from her dreams when everyday we fight for equality,” she stated.

“Preventing her from joining would be acknowledging her difference and insinuating that she is unworthy, which I think is wrong. She is just as deserving as the rest of us. All the power to her for being brave & I hope she goes far,” she continued.
