Miss France 2023: Andrea Faure, a transgender actress, is a candidate in Paris

Andrea Faure is one of 12 finalists announced for the Miss Paris election, which will take place on June 19, ahead of the Miss France Grand Final at the end of the year. This is a great precedent because the nominee is the first transgender woman to enter the beauty contest.

Fantastic filter. 19 years old, Andrea Foret is not unknown, because this young woman is an actress in particular. Thanks to the TF1 movie “Ho She”, she became known to the general public last November.

For this first major role, she camped under the guise of Julian, a teenager who wants to begin the transition to the female gender. Inspired by his personal experience, his performance was praised by critics and viewers.

Andrea Faure was captured last year with the support of her family to multimedia “I always felt different.” And to add: “It was the fruit of a long observation of what surrounded me, by looking at girls and boys. Once I was really sure of myself and this identity, I released myself.”

With the beauty contest, Andréa Furet appears to be fulfilling other dreams, as she is one of 12 finalists for the Miss Paris elections, which will take place on June 19, ahead of Miss Ile-de- France. In doing so, she became the first transgender woman to participate, hoping to reach the title of Miss France.

If the conditions for participation in national elections Miss France 2021is still required to “be registered in civil status as a female”, and some amendments appear to have been made to the new charter.

Indeed, when she became president of the Miss France Association in October 2021, Alexia Laroche-Joubert indicated that transgender candidates would be welcome in the competition. “If there are transgender people who have transitioned to female and have a female ID, no problem. There is no problem,” she said last December on Radio Sud.

During this same period, Elizabeth Moreno, at the time, Minister Delegate for Gender Equality, noted that she had exchanged with Alexia Laroche-Joubert on the subject, and that the participation of transgender women “was possible”.

But this update did not seem to convince the general manager of Miss France, Sylvie Tellier, who previously declared in 2019: “I don’t think the French are ready to elect a transgender Miss. And if the French are not ready, there will be no transgender Miss.”
