Gay beautician community in Burma organized first ever beauty contest with gorgeous name ‘Miss Red Ribbon Beauty Contest’ at Sedona Hotel at the last week of previous month and contributed Kyat 10 million towards HIV victims collected from the contest.
Some commented that it might be a step forward of gay community in Burma to be like a gay rights movements of other countries. At the beginning of the attempt, authorities did not allow organizing the contest but Daw Yu Zaw, sister-in-law of Burmese Tycoon U Tay Za, finally managed to get permit from the authorities.
One commented to MoeMaKa that Junta had taken a fist step towards “Transition to Democracy” by taking on the Gay’s Rights before other Human’s Rights.
