A woman from Lahore, Shyraa Roy has become a beacon of light for the transgender community. She has been crowned the first ‘Miss Trans Pakistan’, after winning a competition in which she went head-to-head with ten participants.
According to the star, singing was already her career but she did not expect to become a beauty queen. She thinks that her beauty comes from the fact that she is original and unapologetically herself.
Roy is the first transgender to claim this title. The crowning ceremony took place in Lahore. Many celebrities and makeup artists from Pakistan and Dubai were also present at the ceremony to see Shyraa get crowned by Miss Pakistan World Areej Chaudhary.
While she was being crowned, her parents called her and were definitely sentimental.
“My parents were calling me and doing all those things that parents do”, she said. Not only has Roy done songs, she has acted in movies too.
The ceremony was to be held in Canada but due to the pandemic, it was held virtually.
After winning the crown, Shyraa has a bright future ahead of her. She is now eligible for the Miss Universe title and is all set to represent Pakistan in France, Philippines, Dubai, Turkey and Thailand.
