Miss Italy Beauty Pageant BANS Transgender Contestants: “Will not jump on the glittery bandwagon of trans activism”
In a world where the lines are constantly being blurred, it’s refreshing to see an organization stand up for the rights of biological women.
The Miss Italy pageant has made a firm decision to exclusively allow naturally-born women to participate in their beauty contest, reinforcing the authenticity of the female experience and the importance of preserving women’s spaces.
Patrizia Mirigliani, Miss Italy Official Patron, firmly stated that the pageant will not be swayed by the current trend of trans activism.
“Since it was born, my competition has foreseen in its regulation the clarification according to which one must be a woman from birth,” Mirigliani shared during a recent interview with Radio Cusano.
This groundbreaking announcement comes hot on the heels of a controversial win at the Miss Netherlands 2023 pageant, where a transgender contestant, Rikkie Valerie Kolle, was crowned the winner.
Kolle, a biological male, will represent the Netherlands at the 72nd Miss Universe competition in El Salvador.
Italy is now poised to prevent this from happening again, thereby protecting women’s rights!

While inclusivity and respect for all individuals are fundamental to our modern society, this decision by Miss Italy is a necessary reminder that women’s rights and spaces deserve preservation.
In a landscape where the rights of biological women are increasingly being undermined, this firm stance in favor of women is not just encouraging but also imperative.
After all, the beauty of womanhood lies in its unique experience – an experience that should be celebrated and protected in its entirety.
The Blaze shares more on this incredible news:
The Miss Italy pageant has banned transgender contestants from taking part in the beauty contest.
“Lately, beauty contests have been trying to make the news by also using strategies that I think are a bit absurd,” Miss Italy Official Patron Patrizia Mirigliani said, according to TND. “Miss Italia, on the other hand, will not jump on the glittery bandwagon of trans activism.”
“Since it was born, my competition has foreseen in its regulation the clarification according to which one must be a woman from birth. Probably because, even then, it was foreseen that beauty could undergo modifications, or that women could undergo modifications, or that men could become women,” Mirigliani said during an interview with Radio Cusano earlier this month.
The Miss Italy pageant banning transgender contestants arrives just weeks after a transgender beauty queen contestant was crowned Miss Netherlands 2023. Rikkie Valerie Kolle – a 22-year-old biological male – defeated a field of nine biological women to be named Miss Universe Netherlands.
Kolle will represent the Netherlands at the 72nd Miss Universe competition in El Salvador.
While Miss Italy stays firm in its resolve to protect the authenticity of women’s spaces, one has to wonder when larger organizations like Miss Universe will reconsider their stances.
In 2012, Miss Universe, despite being a contest traditionally and historically open to biological women, made a significant rule change to allow transgender women to compete.
Paula Shugart, the president of Miss Universe, justified the decision stating their support for “equality for all women,” but this has sparked a debate on the extent of that equality, and whether it unfairly encroaches on spaces and opportunities specifically for biological women.
JUST IN: Miss Italy has banned transgenders from competing saying that competitors must be “a woman from birth.”
The move came just weeks after Miss Netherlands was won by a man.
How is this even a debate?

It’s about time that larger organizations like Miss Universe heed the example set by contests like Miss Italy, and critically evaluate their rules and the implications they have for women’s rights and opportunities.
It isn’t about denying recognition or respect to any group, but rather about upholding the unique experiences, struggles, and triumphs that define womanhood.
Newsweek confirms that will Italy remains strong, Miss Universe has caved to the woke mob and will remain caved:
In 2012, the Miss Universe contest announced that it was changing its rules to allow transgender women to compete.
“We have a long history of supporting equality for all women and this was something we took very seriously,” the president of the Miss Universe contest, Paula Shugart, said at the time, according to Reuters.
The 2018 Miss Universe pageant saw the first transgender woman to compete in Angela Ponce, who previously won the Miss Spain contest.
“This is for you, for those who have no visibility, no voice, because we all deserve a world of respect, inclusion and freedom…And today I am here, proudly representing my nation, all women and human rights,” Ponce wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
So what do you think?
Do you support Miss Italy’s actions?
Or do you want them to follow in the footsteps of Miss Universe?
