Inmates strutted down the runway at El Buen Pastor Prison's annual beauty pageant, competing to be crowned 2017's winner, in Bogota, on Friday.
Every year inmates swap their uniforms for glitzy costumes, to compete in several rounds. Prison chief Nancy Perez Gonzalez explained that the beauty pageant allows inmates to be «disconnected for a moment from all the tragedies they have because of... Еще their legal status.»
All nine cells, housing up to 250 women, nominate a representative to compete for the title. Inmates have a range of convictions from lesser criminal acts to drug dealing and murder.
The event has reportedly taken place for several years. It falls in September to honour the Virgin of Mercy and is a celebration beauty and friendship.
