Inside the Transsexual Beauty Pageant!
Entertainment Tonight ^ | July 27, 2004

Posted on 07/27/2004 7:57:55 AM PDT by Area Freeper

The world's first-ever transsexual beauty pageant made a splash in Las Vegas last weekend at the Riviera Hotel and Casino -- and ET was there!

"They're going to get glamour, glitz and the classiest, most beautiful women in the world," pageant host JAHNA STEELE told our own JANN CARL before the event. "The hook, if you will, is that they are all transsexual."

The 35 contestants of "The World's Most Beautiful Transsexual Contest" had to show proof of their original gender to qualify. The winner ultimately received $5,000 and a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands!

"People will see beautiful bodies, they'll see gorgeous evening gowns," Jahna said before the event. "I think they'll see a night of fun and I would like to think that everyone will leave with a bit more awareness."

A former altar boy, Jahna was 19 when she had sexual-reassignment surgery to change into a woman. Voted Las Vegas' sexiest showgirl in the 1980s before her sex change secret got out, she married a man whom she describes as "an angel" when she was 23. Although Jahna found it difficult to tell her fiancé at the time that she had once been a man, she found the courage to tell him six months into their marriage -- and they remained together for almost five years.

Unfortunately, she walked away from the union because she confesses that she thought she could "do better" at the time, but reveals that if she hadn't left him, they would still be together today. Now after battling her own addictions and others' prejudice, she's achieved her dream of participating in the first-ever transsexual beauty pageant.

"For so many years it's been so hard for us to live a life and to change from one gender to another without going through incredible amounts of pain, yet incredible amounts of growth," says Jahna. "I believe we've all survived a trip to hell and back and lived to tell about it."

Watch ET for more of Jahna and the first-ever transsexual beauty pageant!

There's a typo in this story. The pageant is actually being held in Boston.

Al Gore might be a contender here. He had on lots of rouge and lipstick last night.

I think the old saying about 'lipstick on a pig' would apply here.

"The hook, if you will, is that they are all transsexual."

Yes, yes. Much like the hook of no-anesthetic dentistry is the "drill". Ahhhhhhh.

Have fun with this one, gang.

What kind of person would deceive their spouse about their gender?

Before long it's going to be as hard to sex people as it now is to sex chickens.

Wonder if ET will show Maddie Albright, Ellie Clift and Susie Estrich in the front row scoping out hair and makeup tips....Any drag queen or TS could give them some valuable advice.

Okay, so really tall, buff guys with implants are the "most beautiful women in the world" and trannys are good to go in Athens in the Olympics. Sex selection (against females) is all the rage in Asia and the U.S. courtesy of abortion.

So, I guess my big role in society is to gestate male babies?

proof of their original gender?

reminds me of the Jim Croce song, "If I could save mine in a bottle."

Bad news is when the doctor tells you your wife has cancer.
Worse news is when you find out it's her prostate.

This is probably more information than I'm looking for, but wouldn't the doctor remove the prostate along with the family jewels? What good is a prostate once they are gone?
