What I Think Of Transgender And Ethnic Pageants

  I had the pleasure of guesting at the Polish American Brotherhood channel hosted by Tara Anne Szczepanski who herself has several pageant titles under her belt. The podcast was live streamed on April 6, 2021 starting at 9:00 PM EST. Tara and I discussed the issues surrounding transgender pageants and transgender women competing in traditional female pageants. We also discussed heritage pageants that specialize in promoting one's ethnic/racial/cultural background such as Miss Black America. Other topics discussed include COVID-19, the recent Miss Eco International COVID scandal, plus-size contestants, Miss America, Miss Earth, Miss World, and Miss Universe.
