Last week we reported Bishesh Huirem, a popular transgender actor from Imphal, Manipur has been selected to represent India in the Miss International Queen 2016 to be held in Pattaya, Thailand on 9th Nov 2016.
Miss International Queen
Miss International Queen is hailed as the world’s most recognizable beauty pageant for transgender women is held annually in Pattaya City, Thailand since its inception in 2004. Altogether 30 contestants were selected from 155 countries across the world.
It all started when she participated in the first Miss Transgender Manipur, when she was barely 14 years old in the year 2000. And till now, to her credit has won it five times in a row. Huirem, a graduate from Bangalore University, holds a degree in Fashion and Apparel designing. She also is one of the most sought after actors in Manipur. Not only that, the 27-year old also run her own full-fledged bridal beauty salon.
The Manipuri beauty is understandably very excited to represent the country at the pageant. However there is a small issue that remains to be fixed. The absence of financial backers is a worry for the actress and it is something she has to sort before she leaves for Thailand on October 27.
We hope Huirem’s dream of making it to the pageant turns true.
