The Changing Face of Beauty Pageants

Spring 1993 • September 2001 “Here he comes…” A comical gender bender—an attractive young man, weeping for joy, as a pageant winner’s ribbon is wrapped around his torso, dozens of roses thrust into his arms, a glittering tiara planted on his head.

Read the original feature from 1990 October....
