Justine Ferrer on transgenders being allowed to join Miss U

Former “Survivor” castaway and “Tweetbiz” host Justine Ferrer is not completely sold to the idea of transgenders being allowed to join the Miss Universe pageant.
According to Ferrer, who herself is transexual having had a sex-change operation in Japan prior to her foray into show business,
she’d rather that tradition be respected and that only natural-born women be allowed to join the beauty contest.

“Personal opinion ko lang naman ito. It’s been the tradition ever since of this prestigious pageant that only naturally-born women can
join. So, let us just respect that and have our own beauty pageant as big as this one,” said he in a recent interview with PEP.
But Ferrer agreed that with the rules being changed, she could only be happy for those who dream of joining the prestigious competition.
“Every transgender dreams of becoming a real beauty queen, so if time will permit us then might as well grab the opportunity. Gaya nga nang
sinabi ni Ruffa Gutierrez, if they will allow transgenders to join, who is she to denounce it?” he said.
In the same interview, Ferrer announced that her planned marriage with longtime beau, 62-year old American businessman Richard Lyle, had been
cancelled owing to the latter’s mother having recently passed away.
“Matagal na ring may sakit 'yon at nasa isang care home na siya para nababantayan ng mga nurses,” Ferrer shared in the same interview.
Ferrer said they have no immediate plans of re-scheduling the wedding.
Meanwhile, Ferrer will soon be seen in an HIV awareness infomercial on YouTube titled “Take The Test.”
“Para hindi matakot ang mga tao to take an HIV test. Walang masama in taking the test. Para lang alam natin na we are safe, especially kung
sexually active tayo or kahit na hindi, walang masama in taking an HIV test,” said he about the video.
