2016 New Winner of Miss Transgender UK 2015
New Winner of Miss Transgender UK 2015
Miss Transgender UK is pleased to announce that Miss Daisy Bell will shortly be crowned winner of Miss Transgender UK 2015 and will receive the donation of free feminisation medical treatment from OLMEC Transgender Surgery Institute, Delhi, India together with a modelling contract and a range of prizes.
Miss Daisy Bell said “I am very pleased to be the winner of the prestigious Miss Transgender UK pageant. Prior to this competition I have been crowned winner of a series of other local pageants in London: MISS EXILIO LONDON, MS ALTERNATIVE LONDON, MISS TS INTERNATIONAL AS RUNNER UP.
Life is full of challenges and opportunities. I have embraced these in my life. I have learned to be a positive person and be strong to fight the struggles I have encountered in life. As I entered this world of transgender, it was my decision to pursue the pathway of being a woman and achieve my goal to be part of the history.”
The crowning of Miss Daisy Bell follows the disqualification of Miss Jai Latto who was originally crowned the winner in September 2015.
Any person identifying themselves as a transgender woman was eligible to participate in Miss Transgender UK 2015 on the understanding that they lived full time in their chosen gender. Finalists were also only eligible to be considered for receipt of the donation of medical treatment for gender confirmation or feminisation surgery if they provided their informed consent and could show they suffered from gender dysphoria.
Miss Latto gave many verbal assurances to the organiser and other participants that she was living full time as a woman. This proved not to be the case, accordingly the terms and conditions of the pageant were broken.
Subsequent to Miss Latto being crowned a number of finalists complained that she did not meet the eligibility criteria for the pageant and an investigation was undertaken into allegations that:-
• she was not living full time as claimed
• she was a professional drag queen
• she was bringing the good name of Miss Transgender UK into disrupt by advertising as a gay man on ‘Grinder’
• she had not provided her ‘informed consent’ to be eligible for the donation of medical treatment in advance of the final being conducted
• she could not or would not provide supporting documentation that she was suffering from gender dysphoria
The complaints against Miss Latto were upheld. She was then notified that she would be disqualified. An appeal was conducted on behalf of Miss Latto. She was given four months to explain and refute the allegations made against her but she declined to provide any evidence countering what was found out about her entry. She voluntarily declined the donation of medical treatment for gender dysphoria before she was dethroned.
