Ai Haruna is Miss International Queen 2009
The TV personality from Japan (see pic above) bested 24 other contestants from China, Brazil, Peru, Singapore, Thailand, Venezuela, USA and the Philippines. The 5th Miss International Queen was held from 26-31 October 2009 at Tiffany's Show in the resort city of Pattaya.
The pageant was canceled last year due to political instability in Thailand; so I am very happy that it is now back as it seems, at the moment, to be the only international beauty pageant for transgender and transsexual women. Ai Haruna is a comedienne, TV host and business owner in Japan who is making a name for herself in the competitive Japanese showbiz industry. She came to the Philippines awhile back to dance with Cebu's world-famous dancing inmates.
Omedetou gozaimasu utsukushii Ai-Chan!
