The World's Most Beautiful Hermaphrodite: Tanyarat Jirapatpakon
DRESSED in a flowing yellow gown with matching earrings, a Thai business student wept and embraced her rivals after being crowned the world's most beautiful transsexual. Tanyarat Jirapatpakon was named Miss International Queen 2007 yesterday, besting 23 stunning transsexuals who had come to the Thai beach resort of Pattaya from as far as Germany and Puerto Rico for a shot at the diamond crown.
The Thai's extravagant yet elegant costumes and dedication to environmental causes helped carry the day, taking her past runners-up Aleika Barros of Brazil and Chanel Madrigal of the Philippines.
"I feel excited and so happy. Everybody enjoyed the contest and I didn't expect anything like this,'' the 21-year-old said from atop her throne after winning $US10,000 ($11,022) and the title.
