Puedo no ser la mejor, pero con certeza hago la diferencia. Soy mucho para unos, poco para otros... Pero soy suficiente para mí misma. Porque mi imagen eres tú quien se la hace. Pero mi vida SOY YO QUIEN LA VIVE!! #memories #diosadelmardecadiz

History is being made in the Miss Universe beauty pageant.  Ángela Ponce is the pageant's first transgender titleholder after being crowned Miss Universe Spain.  The 26-year-old said her goal is to "be a spokesperson for a message of inclusion, respect and diversity not only for the LGBTQ+ community, but also for the entire world."  The Seville native will represent Spain at the Miss Universe pageant later this year.  Miss Universe ended its ban on transgender contestants back in 2012.
