Nigeria’s First Transgender Man Takes Part In Beauty Pageant As a Woman
…And he did extremely well in the Miss International Queen pageant where he came 1st Runner Up. Not since Agbani Darego took home the Miss World crown in 2001 has Nigeria done so well in an international beauty pageant.
Meet Miss Sahhara also known by his legal name Oche. He is a transgender man. Oche who was born male took part in the Miss International Queen beauty pageant which is strictly for transgenders last year. For those that don't know “transgender describes a person, male or female, who dresses, behaves or presents themselves in a way that is different from their gender norm. Transgender includes transvestites/crossdressers, Drag Queens/Kings. It does NOT include transsexual people”.
'Transsexual' describes a person, male or female, born with a congenital neurological intersex condition (Benjamin's syndrome). Although transsexualism almost always requires some form of medical intervention up to and including genital surgery, it is not defined by, nor restricted to, that treatment.
For those of you concerned about his safety in Nigeria seeing as he is breaking the country's strict anti gay laws. Sahara/Oche is safely tucked away in the UK…so no 14 years jail time for him.
According to Ebuka Obi Uchendu who tweeted about him, he was quite popular a few years ago in Abuja where he lived in an openly feminine manner.
He is stunning sha! Guys don't lie…if you saw Oche in a club there's no way you would be able to tell he's a man. Men need to be careful these days cos some of these transgender dudes are killing it! They look better than a lot of chicks I know. Guys would have toasted finish and even gotten intimate before they see wetin their eye no fit handle!
The Miss International Queen Pagent is a pageant for transgenders from around the world to present their individual beauty and intelligence in a friendly atmosphere.
