Transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova said she felt discriminated when she was ousted from Miss Universe Canada pageant.

"I will look to turn this situation into a positive so that other people in a similar situation are not discriminated against in the future," she said in a statement on Monday.

But Miss Universe Canada states that the rules of the pageant are clear, that each contestant is required to be "a naturally born female."

The pageant ousted Talackova on March 23 because she did not meet the requirements to compete "despite having stated otherwise on her entry form."

Talackova stated in a YouTube video posted in 2010 that she "knew" she was a female at the age of 4.

Some Talackova supporters are urging organizers through a petition on change.org to allow her to compete.
