Miss International Queen 2014 Is..

For the first time ever is from Venezuela.

22 year old Isabella Santiago beat out  21 contestants from 18 nations to win the tenth edition of the Miss International Queen Pageant in Pattaya, Thailand on November 7.

Santiago is the first ever Miss International Queen winner from her nation that has regularly tasted success in Miss Universe competition around the globe but until now had never had someone win, much less placed in this prestigious pageant for trans feminine women that started in 2004.

She is the second straight contestant from South America to take home the Miss International Queen crown., and you have to wonder despite the controversial comment of Gabriela Isler when the head of Venezuela's Miss Universe organizing body will finally relent and allow trans women like Ms. Santiago to compete for their nation in the Miss Universe pageant system.

Congratulations, Isabella!
