The Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Program was established in 1986 and, according to its website, provides scholarships to young women aged 17 to 24 living in the Greater Derry area in recognition of their extraordinary achievements in academic health, character and community service.

Brian Nguyen’s win at Miss Greater Delhi 2023 sparks online debate

While some praised Brian Nguyen’s success on social media, others denounced the competition for depriving young women of scholarships. One critic tweeted that if it was a woman, she would not have been able to pass the entry procedure at any point. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Miss America show cannot be forced to include trans contenders after a trans complainant filed a lawsuit alleging discrimination. A rule of the Miss United States of America pageant is that competitors should be naturally female, and when the complainant contacted the pageant and asked if the rule could be changed, the pageant allegedly declined. “I don’t think someone should be allowed to argue just because they are transgender,” the complainant told NPR. I think it’s very unstable. Transgender women are equivalent to cisgender women. As far as I’m concerned, grand is more than just the way individuals look. As far as I’m concerned, it’s about giving an individual a voice.
