Transgender beauty queen invited back to Miss Universe4/3/2012
Disqualified Miss Universe Canada contestant Jenna Talackova better start practicing that wave: Officials have reversed their decision to kick her out for being born a boy. The 23-year-old can now compete on the condition she "meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions," although they still haven't clarified exactly what those requirements are. Jenna had gender reassignment surgery at 19 and previously competed openly in transgender beauty pageants (didn't officials do their research?). She hasn't yet responded to the news, but reactions from supporters on Twitter have included "awesome", "good call" and "a win to all LGBT".
Did the Miss Universe Canada officials make the right decision?
