Gloria Allred And Jenna Talackova Speak Out Against Miss PA At The L.A. Pride Parade!

Jenna Talackova LGBT parade

Gloria Allred and her transgendered beauty queen client Jenna Talackova took to the streets of West Hollywood on Sunday to speak out against the Miss Pennsylvania controversy at the El Lay Pride Parade.

Sheena Monnin resigned from her role within the Miss Universe Organization because she felt that the Miss USA Pageant was fixed. A leaked email, however, revealed she was also upset by the pageant's decision to allow a transgendered contestant to compete. She reportedly wrote:

"I refuse to be part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural born males to compete in it. This goes against ever (sic) moral fiber of my being."

Even though Monnin is focusing her efforts on exposing the pageant system for fraudulently selecting the top five finalists at the annual competition, Allred and Talackova wanted their positive message to be heard.

The two women rode through the parade on their own makeshift float and even held a press conference to discuss the issue. While talking about her reversed disqualification to the press, the top 12 finisher at the Miss Universe Canada pageant said:

"Well, I was hurt because I trained for eight months and all of the sudden I was disqualified for something that just so unjust and unfair."

It was unjust, but thankfully it was corrected and Jenna was able to break boundaries for the LGBT community.

We hope Jenna keeps taking advantage of the spotlight she's been given to continue spreading her inspiring message of acceptance and equality for ALL!

    She is way hotter then me. Life sucks.



  2. 2

    Gross to promote this

    I don't think that Ms. LGBT should have been able to compete, either . . . I just think that now all kinds of competitors will be having all kinds of surgeries. I remember the good ol' days when contestants were judge by their natural beauty, not looking like a karved up Kim Kardashian.

    i am all for transgendered folks to live the life they feel they need to

    at the same time, there are beauty contests that are specifically for transgendered
    women, and i think they are all legit from what i can deduce. i don't think that
    that the Miss Universe pageant should have to cater to the transgendered set in
    that regard

    its things like this that help to further lend the transgendered community a negative slant

    if Miss. Pennsylvania is not cool with how the rules were changed, much like Jenna,
    she has a right to do what she needs to do to stand her ground on what she feel is
    her opinion

    Jenna aligning herself a repugnant media-whore like Allred is NOT helping her



  5. 5

    Two freaks that don't belong in the public spotlight.

    I understand what Sheena had to deal with in life and commend her for her accomplishments. However, I do not think she should be allowed in the pageant. I can't stand Donald Trump and this just made me dislike him more. Sheena may have changed herself physically into a woman, but she was not born a woman, and had to be surgically altered to achieve the necessary results. As I understand it the other women cannot be surgically altered so why was Sheena allowed? SERIOUSLY! Fair is fair and this is not fair to the other women and the others to come.

    those legs are soooo manly.

    how totally disrespectful to all REAL women who have trained worked out and dieted to become a viable asset to the world of beauty. This THING that is in the running should NOT be allowed to be in it BASED on the fact that it is a show for REAL women not fakes.
    And man how fugly is that THING in the pic. excuse me now while i go PUKE my guts out and acid wash my eyes.

    Re: MRSMOMOA – The transgender's name is JENNA, not Sheena! Sheena is the Miss Pennsylvania USA who resigned and who accused the Miss USA pageant of being rigged.
