The winner of a national transgender beauty pageant has been stripped of her title amid accusations she was a drag queen and “not transgender enough”.
Jai Dara Latto, 22, was named Miss Transgender UK in a glittering ceremony in London in last September.
But six months on she has had her title removed after organiser Rachael Bailey claimed she was shown footage of the model in boxer shorts.
The pageant runner branded Jai a ‘drag queen’ and accused her of not living full-time as a woman.
The footage which made her change her mind showed Jai wearing a pair of boxer shorts.
It also reportedly shows Jai working out at the gym in a T-shirt and shorts.
Rachael said: “When Jai entered the competition, she said she was full time and she is not – she is a drag queen.
“The documentary showed her living as a gay male in her boxer shorts.
“Underwear is very important to transgender females – one of the first thing people do is change their underwear as it makes us feel like we are finally a woman.
“When I confronted her, she just said that I didn’t have a leg to stand on and it is difficult.
“It is basically one transgender person saying to another ‘You’re not transgender enough to be in our competition’. It sounds daft when you put it like that.”
The main prize for the competition, which sparked controversy when it was awarded last year, was to have £10,000 worth of surgery in India.
But Jai says she has returned the prize and is instead awaiting gender reassignment treatment in Scotland.
There was also a £5,000 cash prize for the winner, as well as a £3,000 modelling contract which has now been awarded to Daisy, 23.
She plans to hike 30 miles in high heels to highlight the issues faced by those awaiting gender transition.
She said Rachael had claimed she had broken terms and conditions by “not being ‘full time'”.
She said she had severed all ties with the pageant, which she claims forces transgender women into a female ‘stereotype’.
On her website, Tiamat explains: ‘I am the Dragon Lady, A pre-op M2F (male to female) transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon, becoming a reptoid as I shed my human skin and my physical appearance and my life as a whole leaving my humanness behind.
She adds that she wants to embrace her ‘most natural self awareness as a mythical beast.’
The unknown victims of Brazilian transvestite Veronica Bolina (Charleston Alves Francisco)
Who are the women he brutalized before being arrested?
It was Saturday 11, April, and Laura P., was sitting on her couch, working. She heard someone knocking, went up and opened the door. It was Charleston Francisco (Veronica Bolina), and what he said to her was appalling:
“I think you are the Devil and I’m going to kill you” (link in Brazilian Portuguese)
This is how her nightmare started.
Charleston, who is 25 years old and male, then proceeded to punch Laura, a 73 years old woman. Bia, another transvestite, helped Laura – and was also beaten by Charleston. A second woman, called Livia, suffered other injuries. Except for one news site, Brazilian…

“Duchesne County prosecutors have charged Susan Elizabeth Rye, 60, with three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony. Rye is accused of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl on three occasions in 1989 and 1990. Born Randall Donald Rye, court records show Rye had his name legally changed in January 2009.
– Duchesne County Jail
This story is fucked up. The rapist is a male, he even looks like a male, yet because he has a legal change of gender and name, the headline reads:
“Duchesne County woman pleads guilty to child sex abuse committed while she was a man”
No, he is a man. He was a man when he raped that 5 year old little girl and he’s still a man today. But here he is being called “she” because the world is insane and respects the preferred pronouns of a rapist instead of…

From Phoenix New Times
Yesenia Patino sits primly on the edge of her chair in a Mexican prison. Serving a 35-year sentence for murder, she looks good.
Dressed in a long-sleeved gray dress with a black collar, she appears carefully groomed. Her shoulder-length brown hair is neat; her makeup is applied to accentuate her dark eyes; her watch and dangly metal earrings complete the look. She appears relaxed and feminine, often running her fingers through her hair, lightly touching her fingertips to the base of her throat as she speaks in a soft voice.
But Patino is adept at deception.
