Manila Bulletin Online reports that the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI), which sends representatives to the Miss Universe beauty pageant every year, has said that it would "respect the decision of the Miss Universe Organization to allow transgenders to compete starting next year."

 

However, BPCI didn’t exactly say that it was also going to implement the same policy. In a statement, Tessa Mangahas, Public Relations and Corporate Communications Manager of Araneta Center, Inc., said: "We respect the decision of the Miss Universe Organization to change its policy regarding transgender participation in the pageant. At the moment, however, we are still awaiting the guidelines of this policy decision from the Miss Universe Organization."
