  • July 11, 2018

Unlike Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray, Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen “Winwyn” Marquez doesn’t agree with transwomen getting to join the prestigious Miss Universe 2018. This conversation sparked after Spain crowned transwoman Angela Ponce as their bet for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant.

Winwyn was quick to claim that she has nothing against transgenders but also straightforwardly expressed that Miss Universe should be for natural born women only.

“And I think, parang let’s just give it for natural-born women, and for transgenders to have their own prestigious pageant.  It’s tradition for Miss Universe eh,” she said.

Winwyn was also quick to say that if Miss Universe allows it, she also has no problems about it. “Pero kung ia-allow naman ng Miss Universe Organization, then we should accept it also, walang problema.”

She concluded: “Sobrang bow ako sa mga transgenders kasi they are very proud of who they are, and there’s nothing wrong with it. Let’s give Miss Universe to natural-born women. No disrespect at all.”

What do you think of Winwyn’s statement?
