MISS TRANSSEXUAL AUSTRALIA INTERNATIONAL 2017
For Laeticia, travelling to Melbourne from Thailand to compete in Miss Transsexual Australia International 2017 has been “an exciting journey”.
Laeticia is a Malaysian businesswoman, model, actor, singer and French-trained culinary and pastry chef of the Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School and former leading showgirl of the world-famous Alcazar Cabaret in Pattaya, Thailand for 10 years.
“I wasn't expecting to win, especially since I had two minds about taking part in an international pageant in Australia and then feeling ill on the final day of the competition and having doubts about performing my best,” she said.
Laeticia, who also won in Best in Rio Costume, beat ten other beauties to win more than $20,000 in cash and kind prizes, including a US15,000 voucher for gender correction or cosmetic surgery at Kamol Cosmetic Hospital, in Bangkok.
During the pageant, she promoted Rising Star, a group she kicked off to empower and support gifted young transgender women to achieve their full potential.
“When I first started my transition to become a woman, I had a hard time finding a support network or role models,” she said.
“I had to find out all the information about transition online and was not supported by my peers who had already completed their transition.
"I am really pleased to now have the opportunity to use my platform as Miss Transsexual Australia 2017 to inform, educate and mentor younger transgender women starting their transition.”
JACQUI MEOFF (HUGH BATTISTELLO)
MISS GAY AUSTRALIA INTERNATIONAL 2017
Jacqui is a 27-year-old retail supervisor and professional female impersonator from the inner Melbourne suburb of Balaclava. Jacqui competed in the pageant in 2015 and came second in 2016. She decided she was going to keep trying until she won the crown.
“I have been part of the Melbourne drag scene for more than seven years, and took part in the pageant in the last few years to see how far I could go with my brand of female impersonation,” Jacqui said.
“I just can't describe how much it means to me to be validated for the hours of planning and work that go into perfecting my art.
“Now I can look back when I am older and be proud of another feather on my cap as a drag queen performer.”
Jacqui performed a choreographed three-and-a-half minute lip-sync of JLo’s ‘Let’s Get Loud’ and promoted the Movember Foundation during the pageant.
She also won Miss Gay Photogenic, Best in Carnival Costume, Best in Evening Gown and Best in Talent.
Patience and persistence do pay!
