Consistent si Catriona noon ng paghahayag ng kanyang pagpabor na makasali ang isang transgender woman sa Miss Universe.

Sa isang interview, sinabi ni Catriona na dapat daw ay ipinagdiriwang ang tagumpay ni Angela.

Pahayag noon ni Catriona, “She is giving a voice, a platform for the transgender community din, so I think that’s very nice.

"I mean, it’s all fair competition naman.

"She’s just a candidate from another country as am I, so, yeah."
