According to Osmel Sousa, President of Miss Venezuela Organ, no transgenders will be allowed in the competition. “The Christian Venezuelan people would never accept the participation of transgenders in the Miss Venezuela contest” said Sousa, during the press conference held in Caracas on April 24th to disclose details about this year’s event. Sousa had been silent over the matter for over a month. But it was during this conference that he finally voiced his opinion.
