Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray expressed strong support for the LGBT community while stressing that religion should never be an excise to hate.
“My belief as a Christian does not limit me from fighting for the rights of others. I love my God and love my fellow brothers and sisters. Religion is never an excuse to hate, put down or act indifferent to the suffering of others. I believe God is Love, and I will treat everyone – no matter who they are, to best of my ability, with love.”— Catriona Gray, Miss Universe 2018 said.
