    FLASHBACK: In 2012, Rob Kardashian Asked a Contestant If a Transgender Woman Could Win Miss USA

    While the Miss USA pageant has often been targeted for by some for its perceived sexism, the beauty competition has actually shown that it can be rather progressive.

    Since 2011, they are the only pageant system that welcomes transgender contestants and that issue was brought into the spot light in 2012 when former reality TV star Robert Kardashian — step-son of Caitlyn Jenner — asked about transgender women competing in the pageant during the Q&A portion of the evening.

    “Would you feel it would be fair that a transgender woman wins the Miss USA title over a natural-born woman?” Rob asked Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo.

    Our Miss USA contestant’s will introduce the new philanthropic tagline to the world by highlighting their own charitable affiliations this June, via Miss USA’s #beMOREthanPRETTY Challenge. Miss USA, Nia Sanchez started the challenge this Memorial Day weekend by conducting an act of charity for a cause close to her heart and challenging two(2) Miss USA contestants to do the same within 24 hours. We ask that each contestant continue nominating others to keep the cycle of good will and empathy in effect well into July. If any person is unable to meet the challenge within 24 hours, we ask that they consider making a donation to the USO’s ‘OPERATION: That’s MY Dress’ Campaign and continue nominating others.
