Philippines’ representative, transgender woman Fuschia Anne Ravena from Cebu, was crowned Miss International Queen 2022 during the coronation night held in Pattaya, Thailand on June 25.

Ravena, a 27-year-old business owner, bested 22 other candidates to succeed Mexico’s Valentina Fluchaire. Colombia’s Jasmine Jimenez and France’s Aëla Chanel placed 1st runner-up and 2nd runner-up, respectively.

During the final question and answer portion, the top three candidates were asked how they would teach the importance of equality if they win the pageant. Ravena’s stated: “I will start it by influencing other people to spread love, peace, and unity to have world equality because after all we live under one sky. And we breathe the same air. And we all live from differences where love is universal.”

With her win, Ravena is now the third Filipino to take home the Miss International Queen title, after 2012’s Kevin Balot and 2015’s Trixia Maristela.
