Trans Puerto Ricans Can Compete In Miss Puerto Rico Universe
Quinones, took over as the new Miss Puerto Rico Universe pageant director in March and has long been an advocate for trans women being allowed to compete.
Like other contestants, trans Puerto Ricans who are ages 18-27, have changed their documentation and wish to compete in the pageant either must be born on the island, have one parent who is Puerto Rican or ha lived on the island for 10 years or more, will be allowed to compete for the title.
We'll have to wait until 2019 to see if any trans contestants enter Miss Puerto Rico Universe. Time will tell if there will be a trans Miss Puerto Rico that wins the title, and goes on to compete at Miss Universe and bring another crown back to the island.
