Jenna Talackova will be competing in the Miss Universe Canada Pageant next week. Her story is such an inspiration!
I read Talackova, born male and from Vancouver, knew she was a female at the age of 4. She says she began hormone therapy at 14 and surgically changed her gender when she was 19. Now 23, she went through A LOT to get where she is today. She was initially disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada Pageant (taking place next week) because she wasn’t a “naturally born female.” Then pageant owner Donald Trump over-ruled and said she can participate. YAY!
Fact: She has a boyfriend and didn’t tell him she was born a male when they first met. Props for her boyfriend for sticking with her, that’s a good man right there.
