I should start by saying that I think the whole concept of "beauty contests" is abhorrent and that, if they must exist, none of the participants should be permitted to wear any kind of cosmetics. The judges should see the entrants, not the artwork on their eyelids.
All that being said, I'd think Angela has as good a chance of winning as anybody and good luck to her. Winning might help to promote understanding of transgender issues and enlist sympathy and help for those forced to live the "wrong" life due to physical anomalies and wider society's nudge-nudge, smutty laugh attitudes or - much worse - persecution and attack.
There's always another way

But surely, by it's very nature it is no transgender?

They are all attempting to look like beautiful women.

Where are the females trying to look like handsome men?

I do know of one person who recently found himself in prison for assaulting a neighbour who had been stealing something from him, the person sued him and he was sent to prison. Because he had not fully changed his gender but it was almost complete he was sent to a women's jail and had to stay in isolation for his sentence.
