Miss Universe Canada yanks transgendered contestant from pageantthestar.com - Monday, March 26th, 2012 at 10:58 AM
The Miss Universe Canada organizers concede Jenna Talackova is a “real girl,” but that doesn’t mean they will let her in their beauty pageant.
Talackova, a native of Vancouver, will not be competing in this year’s Miss Universe Canada pageant because she was born a male.
According to Denis Davila, national director of Miss Universe Canada, the rules set by the Miss Universe franchise state that each contestant must be a “naturally born female.”
