Contestants who previously competed or will compete at other international beauty pageants:
On August 15, 2013, Andy Cohen, who is openly gay, declined to co-host the pageant, due to the country’s recent adoption of anti-gay laws. An Internet petition was also started for the Miss Universe Organization to relocate the pageant from Moscow due to these laws as well as human rights concerns.
MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, also openly gay, took on hosting duties. While he condemned Russia for its anti-gay law, he stated his belief that his presence in Russia would make for a more effective statement against Russian homophobia than boycotting. Russia's LGBT rights record was not discussed during the pageant.
