University’s Equal Opportunity Office wants all-male mock-pageant to include women, transgendered students

The future of the all-male mock beauty pageant at Western Washington University (WWU), Mr. College of Business and Economics, is in question after the Equal Opportunity Office has asked for more gender equality in the event.

The pageant, which began in 2012, takes place annually during the College of Business and Economics’ business week in May. The event involves 10 male students who perform a mock-pageant in front of a panel of judges, in the hopes of being crowned Mr. CBE.
