Face of African Queen Finland changes name, postpone event to 2022
The foremost beauty pageant for people of African descent, The Face of African Queen Finland have renamed the pageant to Miss Afro Diaspora Finland as part of its rebranding measures to enable participation of black ladies and people of colour living in Finland who are from different parts of the world.
It means, young ladies from Africa, Afro-European, African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Asian etc, can now participate.
According to the management, the name change comes on the heels of several appeals from those who are not from Africa, who wanted us to create something for them. Instead of running a parallel pageant we decided to open the doors by renaming the pageant.
The official statement from the management indicates that the pageant will not hold this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Next pageant comes up in 2022 and applications will be opened during the spring.
