Miss Singapore International Queen - Camilia Dzelma
Camilia Dzelma, 22, from Singapore, said her Muslim family had accepted her as she is and called for more transgender beauty pageants.
"I am here to open up things and show the world that I am not a freak," said Dzelma, a children's dance instructor at a government-run school.
"These competitions reduce discrimination. My family is Muslim but they do not care about what my identity is as long as they know that I am happy. My mum just called me and wished me good luck," she said.
