Angela Ponce, 26, beat 20 other contestants in the Miss Universe Spain gala in June to quality for the global round of the pageant.

Ponce, who is an LGTBQ+ activist, became the center of attention when a pre-taped segment was broadcast showcasing key moments of Miss Spain's life and efforts leading up to her participation in the beauty pageant, which was won by Catriona Gray of the Philippines.

Miss Universe, formerly owned by President Trump, didn't allow transgender competitors until recently.

Hung was captured on camera talking with Miss USA, Sarah Summers, and Miss Colombia, Valeria Molares, about how hard it would be for Miss Cambodia, Rern Sinat, competing in the pageant as a woman who can not speak either English or Spanish.

She also described what it felt like to be on the receiving end of so much online hatred.

She pointed out, "I'm OK!"
