25/09/16: 15 Years the annual Mango Tree Ladyboy contest has been going, and this year was no exception to the trend of flatout stunning contestants and exquisite outfits.
Three categories of carnival, swimwear and eveningwear plus a speech was how it was narrowed down to one lucky winner!
The contest was judged and hosted by a gradually stellifying list of celebrities including Cookie (Big Brother), Angie Greaves (Magic Radio), Sandy (Gogglebox), Oritsé (from JLS) and Vanessa from the freaking Saturdays!
Performances from Silver Summers and an insane dance duo broke up a night filled transgender individuals that knew the true meaning of internal beauty and the magnificence of dazzling external artistry.
After the fabulous contest, a metric lady-ton of canapes and some kind exotic lagoon simile of free cocktails, you could say this was one of the most extraordinary and touching nights you could ever hope to go.
