Australian drag queen Courtney Act (pictured) has a very important announcement to make:
Ms. Act got a taste of the runway during L.A. Fashion Week, strutting alongside possible future Victoria’s Secret model, Carmen Carrera. But that was not her first time at the pageant rodeo.
“As a child, I got so good at being beautiful that I even won a competition. I was Mr. Tiny Tot 1987.”
She continues: “As much as I loved winning, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit jealous of the winner of the girls’ competition, Ms. Tiny Tot.”
Now, more than 25 years later, she’s decided to take matters into her own hands and apply to be Miss Universe. And lucky for her, there doesn’t appear to be anything in the Miss Universe competition’s official guidelines that says she can’t.
“You can imagine my excitement when I went to their website and saw there was nothing about being born a biological female,” Act says in the video.
She has begun campaigning for the Miss Universe title, promoting her candidacy online and posing for photo shoots wearing a Miss Universe sash. No word yet from Miss Universe officials, but if Donald Trump rejects you, girl, tell him at least to cast you in The Apprentice.
