The Miss Koovagam beauty pageant, held at the start of the Koovagam festival, celebrated its 25th edition in 2018. That year, nearly 40 transgender women in the age group of 18 and 35 contested for the title. Participants come from mostly Tamil Nadu but also from the Tamil diaspora living in Singapore, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. The beauty pageant receives a lot of coverage in the local Tamil press, and stars from the Tamil movie industry are invited as judges. Image credit : G. Pattabiraman @pattabi07
