Amy Brosnahan is an 18-year-old who wanted to enter the 'Battle of the Babes' beauty contest in Auckland. Organisers seemed fine with the idea until they found out she was transgender.

So Ms Brosnahan went to the human rights commission and after some hiccups, she's back in the competition.

She's been transgender since she was 15, and says it has caused her some difficult moments, the most recent when she entered the beauty contest.
