Maiden state-level beauty pageant for transgenders

Mangaluru: Parivarthan Trust will be organizing its maiden Transgender State-level beauty pageant on October 14th and the logo for the event was released by Mallanagouda Patil, member secretary of the authority, on Tuesday Sept. 11th.

Mr. Patil spoke to media and said that the situation of the LGBTQ community has now improved in comparison to a decade ago. The landmark judgment of the Supreme Court has now changed their fate for the better.

Violet Pereira, founder of the trust said that the idea of the pageant was a result of request from the community members and it was also inspired by a similar event that was organized by the people of Gurugram. Winners of the Mangaluru pageant will represent India in the 2019 edition of the International Queen Pageant in Thailand, she informed. Miss Transqueen India and International Queen Pageant events aim to celebrate gender fluidity, she added.
