New Miss Universe for Marriage Equality

New Miss Universe for Marriage Equality


The newly crowned Miss Universe from Mexico says she supports marriage equality, distancing herself from beauty queens who have spoken out against equality.

"I believe we have to learn to be respectful because they are people who are the same as us," Jimena Navarette said in an interview with a Mexican radio station. "There is no difference. And I don't believe it's just to discriminate [against] somebody based on the gender they prefer, right?... The truth is that I am absolutely against discrimination, and, well, what can I say, I have many friends who are homosexual and I adore them. And they are equal folk: There is no reason we should want to set them aside; there is no reason why we shouldn't let them enjoy what they want to enjoy with their partner."
