Angela Ponce, Miss Universe’s first openly transgender contestant, is hoping to inspire young trans people to follow their dreams.

Ponce, 27, was crowned Miss Spain in June, beating out 22 other beauty queens. In December, she will go on to represent Spain in the Miss Universe pageant in Thailand.

After her historic win, Ponce told the Associated Press that she wanted to use the platform to draw attention to legal discrimination for trans individuals and the trans suicide epidemic.

“If my going through all this contributes to the world moving a little step forward, then that’s a personal crown that will always accompany me,” Ponce told the Associated Press in June.

I’m Dreaming of a White Bodycon Dress

Here’s another set of photos from the recent MN T-Girls recent photo shoot!  I rarely wear white but I found this dress at a thrift store a few months ago and I was thrilled to find out that it fit like a dream.  Hope you like it!

Super Model T-Girls!

I love the fall season.  Fall means cute outfits, wonderful weather and the annual MN T-Girls photo shoot with the amazing Shannonlee, superstar photographer!

I have worked with Shannonlee for about a half dozen photo shoots and this was the fourth photo shoot she did for the MN T-Girls.  You can read about the last two shoots here and here.

We started doing these shoots because for so many of us the only photos we have of our femme side are selfies and let’s face it, nothing beats a professional photo.  Some of us are nervous and have a hard time relaxing and having fun when it comes to professional pictures and it takes a patient person to bring someone out of their shell sometimes.  Not only is Shannonlee a talented photographer, she’s super fun to work with and helps us all feel like supermodels.

I had a lot of fun picking out my outfits for the day and got into the Halloween spirit a little, too.  I can’t wait to share the final pictures with you all!
