LOS ANGELES - A would-be Canadian Miss Universe contestant is deciding what action she'll take after being disqualified from the pageant because she was born a male.

Jenna Talackova hired Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred who is known to take on controversial cases.

Talackova, 23, underwent a sex change four years ago.

She was disqualified from the pageant because the Miss Universe Organization says entrants must be naturally born females.
