1 min read

Zozibini Tunzi was named in Atlanta as the winner of the Miss Universe election 2019. Miss South Africa thereby defeated 90 other candidates and left Miss Puerto Rico as 2nd and Miss Mexico as 3rd. People reports this.

The 26-year-old Tunzi is a PR professional and activist, who uses her platform to fight against gender-based violence. She is also committed to natural beauty and encourages women to love themselves as they are.

A notable candidate this year was Miss Myanmar, named Swe Zin Htet, who is the first openly lesbian participant in the election. The 21-year-old Htet consciously came out with it around the Miss election. “When I say I am a lesbian, it has a major impact on the LGBTQ community in Burma,” said Htet, who stated that homosexuality is still punishable in her country.
