Obviously, members of the gay community are rejoicing over the victory, but why is Miss Universe pageant such a big event for them?

Twitter user @matthew7457 explained that the Miss Universe event is a combination of a gay’s frustrations and their competitive spirit.

Also, the inclusion of Spain’s Angela Ponce — the first transgender candidate in the Miss Universe pageant — is also a cause for extra celebration, aside of being a source of pride and joy.
