The Miss Universe Organization announced today that after consulting GLAAD, it has opened its competition to transgender women. The decision stems from a complaint from Jenna Talackova, who was disqualified from the Miss Canada pageant for her gender identity. She has accepted an invitation to compete in the competition as she originally planned, and in future, all trans women will have the same opportunity.
