Jahna Steele



Jahna Steele, Entertainer



Jahna's bio:


Jahna first made headlines in 1992, when she was outed by the press for being a transsexual. At the time, she was starring in the �Crazy Girls Revue� at the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada and had been named Las Vegas� sexiest showgirl the year before. Once her secret was out, she was immediately dismissed from the show. With her dreams shattered, Jahna embarked on the talk show circuit to tell her story and educate people. She created a one-woman show and toured across the US, singing her way into the hearts of thousands of supporters. Jahna also guest starred on NYPD Blue.


Jahna eventually returned to the Riviera and resumed her showgirl status, however the media intrusion was too much and six months later, she left the show for good. Retreating from the spotlight, Jahna was able to reassess her life and goals. Originally not wanting to be the �Poster Child� for the ts community, Jahna realized that this was her opportunity to speak out for transgender acceptance and embraced the role.


In 2004, Jahna returned to the Riviera to host �The World�s Most Beautiful Transsexual Pageant�. The experience has opened many new doors. A book of Jahna�s life is in the works-and she promises a good read, a documentary film is soon to be released and she is touring again. Anyone who has not heard Jahna sing doesn�t know what they�re missing. She is extraordinarily gifted.


Jahna was instrumental in paving the way for transgender entertainers to venture into mainstream media and be accepted.

 Miss Universe Disqualifies Transsexual Contestant: SHE was Born a BOY

By Sarah B. Weir, Yahoo! blogger | Beauty 

Jenna Talackova (right)Miss Universe Canada officials have banned 23-year-old transsexual Jenna Talackova from participating in the pageant finals to be held in Toronto in May, 2012. The Vancouver contestant was one of sixty-five women chosen to compete in the national contest (which is owned by Donald Trump). The Daily Mail Reports that Denis Davila, national director of Miss Universe Canada, asserts that every contestant must be a "naturally born female." Critics of the decision claim that the rules do not specifically address sex change or plastic surgery.

The statuesque blonde Talackova is calling it a human rights issue. She says that she knew she was a girl by age four, started hormone therapy at fourteen, and had sex reassignment surgery at nineteen. She's previously competed in both transsexual and women's beauty pageants. "All I can say is that they disqualified me because I'm not 'natural born,' she told the National Post. "[That] doesn't make sense because since I was conscious, I always felt this way."

After being kicked out of the pageant, Talackova, whose twitter account has since been locked, tweeted, "I'm disqualified, however I'm not giving up. I'm not going to just let them disqualify me over discrimination." Online support for the beauty queen is growing. So far, over twenty-one thousand people have signed a petition demanding she be allowed to compete. It reads, "She is a woman and deserves to be treated as any other woman would be."

Talackova, who says she is not doing interviews until she consults a lawyer, describes herself as, "a woman with a past."

Jeremy Stanford – Director, Producer, Editor

Like most people, my exposure to transsexuals before TRANTASIA was limited to sensationalized daytime talk-shows where the women were usually marginalized and ridiculed. TRANTASIA presented an opportunity to explore this subject in a way that had never been seen before. Faced with adversity, these courageous women have chosen to live their lives with genuine grace and humor. I was inspired to make a movie that reflected their approach to life. My goal was to present these women's personal stories in an honest way that would be enlightening and entertaining. The result is a film that I believe is not only very funny, but also extremely moving. TRANTASIA is a film about a pageant and the importance of big hair, but it is also the story of family, love and ultimately the incredible resilience of the human spirit.

Jahna Steele

A former altar boy who transformed himself from John into Jahna at age nineteen is the emcee of the pageant. A ravishing blonde and former 'Las Vegas Showgirl Of The Year', Jahna faced an explosive tabloid scandal when it was revealed that she was actually born a man.



Born in Iowa as one of four boys, Cassandra was raised by her basketball coach dad who once told her, "You will make the ugliest woman." Now a sensational career-driven model and actress, Cassandra is determined to be a star or die trying. Will she survive the toughest challenge of her life?



A stunning Puerto Rican beauty who has survived life on the streets, Maria now counsels women-in-crisis as an outspoken social worker and activist. However she would leave it all behind to become a Vegas showgirl.



The conflicted outsider Tiara rattles the pageant with her emotional outbursts. Her fundamentalist mother warned her the world will end “when man turns into woman”… and that day has come!



This sultry blond bombshell from Chicago means business and will stop at nothing to win. This is her big comeback after winning her last pageant 10 years ago. Can she prevail?



A fierce and fiery southern belle with an impressive record of pageant wins, Dorae confronts any detractors with her 'mind over matter' attitude... "I don't mind and you don't matter!"
