Storyline

Las Vegas promoters planning a review starring Jahna Steele invited transgender women to participate in "The World's Most Beautiful Transsexual Pageant," a two-day contest from which eight or so women would be offered jobs in the review. About 20 women arrive for all-night rehearsals and the pageant itself: swimsuit, evening gown, and talent competition, the selection of eight finalists and three prize winners. We follow the women backstage and get in-depth profiles of six: two from Chicago and one each from LA, San Francisco, San Antonio, and Columbia, South Carolina. We meet their families, and we learn about their lives and their journeys of self-discovery and acceptance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com> and Clavain

It is amazing what you stumble upon when you wake up early Sunday morning. I had seen brief snippets of this and decided to give it a total view. I am certainly glad I did.

These women were just amazing. Under the purview of the first Transsexual beauty pageant, you had the opportunity to see six of the women and their families and get to know what their childhoods were like and how they coped as males before they were transformed. You learned that there is some conflict between pre-op and post-op transsexuals. You learned to appreciate another part of what makes up this human race.

Were they beautiful? I would have no problem hooking up with most of them (post-ops, of course). A really great show.
