Manipur’s Transgender model Bishesh Huirem all set to represent India at 2016 Miss International Queen

Bishesh Huirem from Imphal will be representing the country at Miss International Queen, 2016 at Pattaya in Thailand in November

Sept 26, 2016: It is amazing how the society is changing for good. Transgenders in India have been the subject of mockery for centuries, but things are changing gradually. A few months back, India wholeheartedly accepted the teenage transgender Naina, a 16-year-old student who came out as gay and transgender.

“I am not representing my state or region, but my country. Therefore, I will give my best and hopefully win the crown,” she told the media.

The 26-year-old is busy preparing for the contest, to be the best. Bishesh is a trained apparel designer who runs her own beauty salon in Imphal. Beauty contests aren’t anything new for her. Bishesh has been taking part in the contests since her school days, reported HT.

“I knew I was different when I was just 7-8 years old as I would feel uncomfortable going to a boys toilet. But it was difficult to convince my parents that I am a transgender,” she said.

“I promised to fulfill my parents dream by completing my studies. Once I did that, I chose to pursue my own goals.”
