Transgender Miriam Jimenez tries her/his luck at Bb. Pilipinas 2013

Transgender Gay Miriam Jimenez Screening Bb Pilipinas 2013

Due to remarkable placement from 2010-2012 in Miss Universe pageant, a lot of local beauty queen hopefuls are currently trying their luck to be one of the official candidates on the biggest and most prestigious beauty pageant in the Philippines, the Binibining Pilipinas now celebrating it's 50th year.

The screening started late December of 2012 and was extended till January 31.

Recently during the submission of application, a big shock among pageant enthusiast as the 24 year old transgender Miriam Jimenez was spotted at the Araneta Center and it is pretty obvious that she is applying for the pageant.

The Miss Universe Organization (MUO), in light with the famous Jenna Talackova issue, had released the statement that it is now accepting transgenders at the pageant. But then, Jenna is Canadian and Canadian laws allows an individual to change his or her gender. Well not in case of Miriam where the said law was not yet (possibly not be approved) applicable in the Philippines.

Miriam Jimenez, born as Bryan Arconado Jimenez on May 6, 1988 at Barbar, San Juan, Ilocos Sur. She was considered a pageant veteran and have joined and won many beauty contests for transsexuals both here and abroad. One of her most recent stints includes Miss Amazing Philippine Beauties 2010 and in Miss International Queen 2012 held in Pattaya, Thailand where she is one of the top 10 semi-finalists.

It is with great doubt whether Bb. Pilipinas would give her a chance or rather accommodate her at all.
