“I support them to participate in this pageant. If those who have plastic surgery are accepted to compete in the pageant, it doesn't matter whether they are transsexual or not. Those who meet the criteria in terms of qualifications, height, beauty... are allowed to participate in the contest," said the chief organizer.

The primary round of the northern region will take place on June 12 in Hanoi while the southern region’s round will be held in HCMC on June 19.

The semifinal and final round will be organized in HCMC on July 31 to select top 35 contestants for the climax night which is scheduled to take place in the southern central coastal province of Binh Thuan on August 21.
