when I saw the headline on Boston.com, I could hardly believe it:
"See photos of the first international transvestite beauty pageant"
upon clicking the link I leared that that the "Miss International Queen 2004 competition…is the first-ever international transvestite beauty pageant Nov. 6 in Pattaya, Thailand. The main rule of the competition was that contestants had to be born male."
Thailand's Treechada Petcharat took the crown, with India's queen (heh) as runner up, but actually I think the fellows look pretty good all dolled up. those Swan people could probably get a makeup tip or two from the Queens.
