Jenna Talackova lost her bid to become Miss Universe Canada's first transgender title holder, but said her history-making appearance awarded her something much more. She said she proudly saw herself as an advocate for equal rights, something she never expected to be. (The Vancouver blonde was initially barred from competing because she was born male.
