What just happened? Did this really just take place? Did Donald Trump approve of this? Angela Ponce Camacho (born 18 January 1991) is a Spanish model and beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss Spain 2018. Ponce made history on June 29, 2018, as she is the first transgender woman to ever be crowned Miss Spain.
Ponce wishes to put out a strong message, aimed at President Donald Trump, as he is the former owner of Miss Universe, in addition to others who may judge based on physical appearance. Ponce said she wants to promote transgender rights, and raise awareness about inclusivity, tolerance and diversity. Ponce stated, “I always say: Having a vagina didn’t transform me into a woman. I am a woman, already before birth, because my identity is here.”
She campaigns to promote gender diversity and equality. Angela is also the first transgender woman ever to be crowned Miss Universe Spain. If she takes home the crown, she wants to want to spread tolerance and respect towards oneself and others globally. Angela is looking forward to making her country proud at this year’s Miss Universe competition.”
