Transgender Jenna Talackova SLAYS Elle Canada Spread After Being Disqualified From Miss Universe Pageant!

Transgender Jenna Talackova makes waves in the fashion world after landing a spread in Elle Canada's January 2014 issue!

Take THAT, Miss Universe Canada!!

Last year, Miss Universe contestant Jenna Talackova was disqualified from a Miss Universe Canada pageant for being born male — even though she had gender-reassignment surgery at age 19.

Her plight did not go unnoticed, however, and the model’s career has probably blossomed even further due to the unwarranted snub!

She is set to star in a Canadian reality show titled Brave New Girls, and is starting Elle Canada’s 2014 off right by snagging a spread in the mag’s January issue.

Jenna totally rocks the spread, and poses in couture like she was born to do exactly that. AH-mazing!!!

Can't wait to see more of this lovely lady in future spreads!!

Transgender beauty pageant contestants

Such AMAZING progress in the world of beauty pageantry!

Transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova was originally discriminated against and rejected by the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant because she was born a male, but after much hell raised from organizations like GLAAD, the pageant organizers changed their tune.
