A group of Indonesian transgender women showed off glittering gowns in a beauty pageant held almost entirely in secret to avoid unwanted attention from extremists.

Miss-TransgenderTwenty-eight-year-old Pie Nabh Tappii won the title of Miss Transgender Indonesia, facing off competition from 18 other contestants.  She also received 10 million rupiah (S$1,000) and a 2m-high trophy.

“I am happy, but I want to cry as well… I didn’t expect this,” said Tappii after being crowned.

The pageant was kept mostly under wraps, with just a handful of media invited as organizers warned cheering supporters not to share images of the event on social media as it unfolded, fearing the wrath of religious radicals.
