Zimbabwe Miss Jacaranda

Zimbabwe Miss Jacaranda

In this photo taken Saturday Oct. 19, 2013 contestants take part in the Miss Jacaranda pageant held on the outskirts of Harare. And the winner is … Ezmerald Kim Kardashian. That was the stage name for a young man who won the title of Miss Jacaranda at a drag queen pageant in Zimbabwe. He refused to give his real name because he feared for his safety in a country whose president has described homosexuals as “worse than pigs and dogs.” (AP Photo/Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi)
