HD Video Interviews from Miss International Queen 2022 in Pattaya, Thailand

(05 July 2022, 13:25 +07)  Miss International Queen (มิสอินเตอร์เนชั่นแนลควีน) is the largest and most well known international transgender beauty pageant in the world.

The event, which takes place annually, attracts contestants from all over the world, some of whom even travel with friends, assistants and family for three days on costly journeys from different countries in South America to take part.

Because of COVID19 regulations and travel restrictions, Miss International Queen did not take place in 2021 which makes the event this year, the 16th in MIQ's history, even more important as it signifies the reopening of borders and hopefully of life as we all used to know it.

Below you will find different video interviews - available in HD video and podcast formats - with contestants, the winner of Miss International Queen 2020 and the MD of Tiffany's Show Pattaya, Alisa Phanthusak, whose vision it was to create the pageant and develop it into one of the most important annual showcases of transgender beauty and equality in the world.

You will learn from the interviews why people travel so far to take part, how and when they first learned of Miss International Queen, what it would mean to them to win, what has led them on this journey in the first place, where they plan to travel to in Thailand after the Grand Finals, and why so many transgender women choose Thailand for their gender reassignment surgery, commonly known as SRS.

You will also discover what it means to win Miss International Queen and how it can change your life, as well as more on the business side of the event and how MIQ is expanding with franchises around the world and embracing technology to make it even more successful than it already is.

I do not envy the very difficult decisions that the judges of Miss International Queen 2022 are going to have to make in the Grand Finals on Saturday, 25 June. For example, I defy anyone to not be extremely impressed with Javiera Arnillas Cartagena, Miss Peru. Extremely well spoken, highly educated and with a very obvious and determined passion to achieve her goals, no matter the challenges she will face along the way. Oh, and as if that were not enough already, she's gorgeous too (as are all the contestants, I hasten to add)!
