Indian Beauty Queen Vocal Advocate For Gay Rights

Times of India blogger Celina Jaitley was both Miss India and a runner-up for Miss Universe in 2001.  She’s quite beautiful and so you should go to Box Turtle Bulletin to see her for yourself (they deserve the traffic, so go!)

Via the BTB:

“I became a part of the world of glamour at the very young age of 16. And not only since then, but somehow from childhood I have had gay friends and have been a part of their agonies and ecstasies . It’s horrid… just like apartheid when your very existence is a crime and you are discriminated against just because of what you are.”

Celina describes herself as “a straight woman with a whole lotta balls.” She also says, “If you don’t believe in gay relationships, don’t get into one.” I think I’m becoming a huge Celina fan.
