Make-up artist Solongo Batsukh became the first transgender contestant, who participated in the Miss Universe Mongolia competition in October 2018. However, she fell short of representing Mongolia at the Miss Universe 2018 in Thailand on December 17, 2018. Talking about her journey, Solongo said, “I wanted to inspire as many women as possible. But I’m still proud that I got the chance to compete in this contest, and the ‘Solongo’ I created was a true winner in my heart.” Apparently, her participation didn’t please everyone as she garnered negative reactions on social media.” Born as Belguun Batsukh, she grew up as a boy in the semi-arid central province of Dundgovi. She couldn’t pinpoint her gender identity until she learned about different gender orientations in her early 20s. While working as a programme officer at Youth for Health, she realised that she was a woman born in a man’s body. She started wearing wigs, putting on dresses and taking hormone therapy. Batsukh is among the few LGBT people who have dared to come out in Mongolia. Batsukh wants to dispel the image that transgender women can only be strippers or sex workers living on the fringes of society.
