Queen Monet Exchange of St. Lucia.

Miss St. Lucia’s Monet Exchange was crowned queen of the 6th Annual Gay Caribbean USA Pageant held on Saturday, Sept. 27 at Restoration Plaza in Brooklyn, New York.

A source explained that seven of the eight contestants are men “but transgender so they are called ‘misses'”. Contestants prefer not to use their real names.

“They are shemales. They all got the male private part but are the women in any relationship,” the source added.

‘Monet Exchange’, the St. Lucia representative, also won best answer.

According to the pageant’s Facebook page, Monet Exchange describes herself as eclectic and benevolent.

“Momo says that growing up gay was no walk in the park,” the post also stated.

Miss Grenada (Momo Shade) finished second and Miss Jamaica (Chamise Renee) placed third.

The other contestants were Jackie Reloaded representing Trinidad & Tobago, Ky’Neisha Dupree (Miss Bahamas), Mercedes Successful (second contestant for Jamaica), Madison Banks (Miss Dominican Republic) and De’Zyre Love Revlon (Miss Honduras).

The annual competition is open to male impersonators, gay males, lesbian females and transgenders. The event attracts contestants outside the US who fly to New York to represent their countries.

Bahamas won the 2013 competition and Honduras participated for the first time this year.

‘Marlon’, a St. Lucian, is the producer of the pageant.

The aim of the pageant is reportedly to help bridge the gap between the gay and heterosexual communities in the US and Caribbean, opening the opportunity for better understanding.

  3. The wrath of God will soon destroy us because we want to live not how he wants us to live, but in our own way.God is angry with all the things we do in the name of pleasure and ''rights''.

    (4)(13)
    • Interesting how you pick the sins you want to bash, especially when the god you worship was forced down your throat by slave masters. If you think people just wake up one morning and decide they want to be gay in a world out to eradicate gays then you have to be bat shit crazy. But then again you believe in white jesus.

      (7)(1)
    • Lying lips are an abomination says the bible yet pastor a lie on the pulpits to baptize people, while I believe homosexuality is a sin so is hatred so you do not have the right to hate after all most of you men who call them battyman does it to your women in my opinion shit is shit so be careful not to get kicked in hell by the gays you send there

  5. Lucians stop with all the hatred!! Why are you guys not bashing the men and women who are fornicating day in and day out! That's a sin too? or did yall forget because it is so common place! Congrats to the pageant winner! "He who have not sinned cast the first stone", these words came straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ when a crowd was about to stone a prostitute. OR DID YOU GUYS FORGET TO READ THAT PART IN THE BIBLE. All you who talk about the bible, seems you guys forgot the compassion, Jesus showed to the sinners. Some of you bible quoters to are the very same people that will walk over someone if they have to, those who pass by a hungry person and will be like that's none of my business. So hush if yall have nothing nice to say.

  6. This is why i like Pamela (PM of Trinidad). She has said publicly that her country does not support a gay culture in response to relaxing the law prohibiting it. Meanwhile what does our own coward PM do? Spend money sending people to gay conference, having gays teaching police human rights (what an absurdity, you would think that it would be the MIn of Justice) and hiding behind people spaced-teeth. Lame excuse for a PM i must say. Lame. lame , lame

  7. It deeply saddens me to wake up and see soo much small minded hatred toward something that was intended to be a celebration. Who are any of you to judge what the person does with his/her life when the sins you commit are no better. Isnt sex b4 marriage a sin? Dont yall do it anyway? Who is going to sit there and judge you? No one... Because that is none of anyone's business. To the person who spoke of sodom.. Read on your history
    .. The city was not burned because the people were gay.. It was burned because the people were not hospitable and tried to rape the travelers who were god's angles. It was a crime to not be hospitable not gay. It was the church who decided that being gay was wrong only because it did not follow god's law of being fruitful and multiply.
    In another note.. YES there are gay animals and any pet owner would know that. The only difference between animals and humans is that the animals cant say how they feel nor do they dress themselves.
    It is sad that i need to see such small minded behavior being published to the world.
    Congrats Mrs St Lucia.. You have accomplished more them most these people trying to put you down.

    (13)(3)
  8. Let's all hate some gay people that we may never meet in our life. Sure, it will make us feel like better people and erase our own sins.
    Because being a good Christian means being a religious bigot.
    God bless St Lucia.

  20. You don't have to accept anybody lifestyle but you have to respect it, once that person is not trying to force his or her lifestyle on you.

    Let us learn to respect each other.

    God is a God of love, tolerance. Kindness. Mercy. Forgiveness.

    You'll claim to be godly and most of the comments are here are full of hate and ignorance.

    Inyowan!

  21. We have more serious issues facing this country and you'll wasting you'll time on one Lucian man who win a pageant show on new York! No work for the young people. Grynnberg. We have a p.m that just keeps borrowing money. The st. Jude hospital that cannot be finished. Crime is on the increase. Politicians getting rich overnight. A police force that is in a mess. We have employers taking advantage of employees. More than half of the population is unemployed. A shabby medical service.

    You'll are full with so much HATE. Some of you so called Christians are nothing but hypocrites hiding behind the bible. Pastors fornicating. Adultry. Embezzlement. All of that in the church.

    Live and let others live. Even if their lifestyle is not wat you consider right that's none of your forking business you are not God.

    A person is free to choose his lifestyle. It was granted to him by God. He created you and I and the gays with free will.

  41. This is an ABOMINATION to the Most High. How can we say we believe in Him yet slap Him in the face with our sin. At the end of the day it's not about pleasing ourselves and doing whatever we want whenever we want just because we like it or it makes us feel good. It is about pleasing the Almighty father and doing what is pleasing in His sight. We need to curb our lust of the flesh and obey the Most High's Words.

  51. If there is consensus among all that a particular pattern of behavior is not good then why should we promote it? If we are saying that the people are not the problem that it is the behavior. Why are we advertising this behavior. Human Rights is concerned with the rights of persons not with behaviors which may injure or corrupt others, especially children.

  54. The pageant was mixed! There were transsexuals persons, a biological woman, and drag queens. The winner Monet Exchange I believe is a drag queen. Someone who does female impersonation strictly, she never has, and is not a woman.

  61. We may not agree with their lifestyle, but they have their full rights to live free on this earth as god's children. The same bible which speaks against homosexuality also speaks against adultery and fornication. Most of the children born in St.Lucia now are born out out of wedlock. Yet we want to bash gays and lesbians...how hypocritical of our society....

  64. Dud, i understand that Gays have ALOT OF POWER.
    But why are you cowering like this when didn't say anything of an offensive nature.

    So, don't you find high-lighting a group of gays and calling them Gays, aren't offensive to most of us the readers?

    So by you refusing to post my comment has allowed you to give those deviants more power over us.
    How are we to accept their behaviour, but whenever we speak against it, we are at fault?

    Based upon how quickly you tend to attack posters. I though you would allow my comments to go through to balance it off.

    • Hi DJ. I am sorry you feel that way but I want to inform you that an idle tongue does not betray its owner. You must remember that even if you dont care there are others that do care. If you dont mind me correcting you, In the future keep those words to yourself. It wont change the people it will only open a can or worms as you never know what your children or family will turn out to be. Lets repect others so we can be respected. I love you as gods child and them as gods children so lets love each other.

      • Hey PAMO, same way you have your opinion I have mine. "I don't care, and I don't care who cares.

        I AM NOT SAYING BOOM BI BI EITHER !!

        ALL I AM SAYING IS STAY AWAY FROM THE KID !!

        I DON'T THINK ANY PARENT HAVE A DESIRE FOR THEIR CHILD TO BE GAY.

        IT'S JUST A SAD SITUATION. SORRY !!

        • Hi DJ,
          I was just giving a word of advice and you really dont have to embrace what I said. What I do know its alot of things we hate and sometimes we find the people we live are part of it and we then have tied tongue because we did not realize our family is into it. I am a straight as straight could be but I do care and respect others. If they ask me I will tell them I dont enforce it but for the idiviuals they are somebody's child. One day you will remember DJ. I have had my fair share of talking crap and i have learned and stop. You must be young DJ and you will learn. Lets pray for those that dont obey gods law as it is all of us not only Gays. Thats what I am talking about. Someone else has the idea. We can only throw stones when we are perfect and our family is perfect.

          (0)(1)
        • Before I sign out DJ, hear that. I have a gay friend and one of my friends called him the b word. Can you imagine that same night he had just did it with her boyfriend. I did not say nothing and he did not say a word too. He told me that she is taking what he dont want so it comes to the same thing. Be careful what you say as my girl never knew what her boyfriend was doing and she insist and tell him she did not like that B guy. What she did not know that B guy was also her man indirectly. Imagine that.

      • we embrace too much non sense...
        God created a man for a woman
        like someone said below male and females not SHEMALES...

  70. What the fk is this....are we forgetting Sodom and Gomora, the Lord will unleash his wrath on us, walk in the ways of the Lord thy God or suffer the consequences of your action.

  72. This article was not written to highlight the true meaning the show and what is represents. After reading this, I realize this was a situation where the writer/s intention was to point fingers as to who is gay. Knowing very well how the St Lucian society operates. " aa verway I did not know he was like that uh..aa she too ee" and this article speaks to such ignorance. Such stupidity.

  73. God made male and female! Shemales? Who made those? Are they the result of evolution? I wonder if there are any transgender animals around.
