A Spanish model is set to become the first transgender woman to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. Angela Ponce was crowned in the countrywide Miss Universe Spain 2018 over the weekend, becoming the first transgender woman to win the title. The 26-year-old beat 22 fellow contestants to claim the top spot in the Spanish city of Tarragona, Pink News reported.
Her win grants Ponce a place to compete in the worldwide Miss Universe contest set to be held in Philippines in December 2018. Transgender contestants were first allowed to compete in Miss Universe six years ago. The change was enacted after trans contestant Jenna Talackova was disqualified from Miss Universe Canada when organizers discovered she had transitioned from male to female.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
