Yay! Such good news!
Thanks to the wonderful organization GLAAD, transexual beauty queen Jenna Talackova has been cleared to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant!
Previously, the Donald Trump-owned organization had squashed Jenna's dreams by disqualifying her because she was born a male. Since discrimination is NEVER cool, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation called upon the Miss Universe Organization to review her case.
In a statement released on Monday, the organization revealed they had reversed their decision:

Former beauty queen and University of Arizona law school student Kumari Fulbright was sentenced on Thursday to two years in prison and six years probation.
She pled guilty last year to conspiracy to commit kidnapping and aggravated assault after orchestrating the kidnapping and torturing of her ex-boyfriend. WTF?!
Her ex told police that Fulbright, along with three men, tied him up, robbed, tortured him and held him captive.
She was named named Miss Pima County in 2005 and Miss Desert Sun in 2006 and competed in the Miss Arizona contest.

The newly crowned Miss USA Rima Fakih was in a naughty dance contest featuring a stripper pole 3 years ago in her home state of Michigan sponsored by a local radio show. And she won!
Head DJ Mojo reveals:
“The strippers there taught the contestants how to do moves like ‘booty poppin’ and pole dancing. Rima told us at the time that she was a model — and her routine was awesome! She definitely deserved to win.
“We got phone calls from the Miss USA people and they’re pissed off! We asked if Rima’s going to be in trouble over these photos, and they would not comment on it. We would hope she won’t lose her title.”
But Donald Trump has already confirmed she'll be keeping her crown. He explains:
"Obviously she has great imagination but she's fully clothed and a high quality person. We back her to the hilt."
We've seen beauty queens do a hell of a lot worse — haven't we Carrie Prejean?
