Angela Ponce was crowned on June 29 as Miss Spain and will represent her country in the most important beauty contest in the world. Her participation will make this competition extremely egalitarian.
Her presence in the competition is significant since the model of 26 years old has achieved what none had achieved before: to be the first transsexual woman to represent Spain in Miss Universe.
Llevar el nombre y los colores de España ante el Universo es mi gran sueño. Mi objetivo: ser portavoz de un mensaje de inclusión, respeto y diversidad no solo para la comunidad LGBTQ+ sino para el mundo entero. . . #soybemiss #somosmasdeloqueves #missuniversespain2018 @orgbemiss
In 2012, Canadian Jenna Talackova became the first transgender woman to win Miss Canada; however, she was disqualified when the judges discovered that she was born another gender. Despite this, she did not stay with her arms crossed; instead, she protested and she managed to change the rules so she could be another participant in the contest.
Thanks to the Canadian woman who became a symbol of diversity, today Angela can be part of the 67th edition of Miss Universe next to 90 other contestants of different nationalities.

Extremely excited, Angela wrote on Instagram:
"Life is full of challenges, of challenges, to understand that in my life has meant that today I have fulfilled a dream that I always had, for this the only thing I needed was to turn every obstacle that appeared to me as an opportunity for growth. From my tenacity, with constancy, discipline, respect, love to myself I close with the crown of Miss Universe Spain a stage where I walked hand in hand with my family and friends always receiving their support and unconditional love, without them none of this would be possible. Today begins a new cycle for me, committed to myself, with my mission of life, with Spain, I'm going to Miss Universe with the awareness and commitment to carry forward a message of inclusion, respect, tolerance, love for oneself, love for others."
