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.
Babe bakit super saya ng mga bakla sa #MissUniverse?
Babe, it is because our frustrations on being a woman and our competitive spirit of a man is being addressed by Ms. Universe & I thank you. Kob kun ka 👑

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.

And it appears that it is a good thing that Gray won, because your friendly haircutter would have been grumpy if she didn’t.
