Miss Kataluna Enriquez, is the primary transgender girl to compete within the Miss USA Pageant after successful Miss Nevada final month and is heading to Tulsa OK to compete within the Miss USA Pageant in November 2021.
“I’m so comfortable and grateful to be Miss Nevada USA 2021 and characterize our state Nevada on this yr’s Miss USA,” Enriquez instructed “Good Morning America.” “This has been considered one of my longest desires and I’m comfortable to share it with my neighborhood, particularly the LGBTQ+ youth.”
It wasn’t a simple path to blaze for Kataluna, an Asian American girl of coloration.
The unite-the-right racist march, attended by the likes of West Virginia Sheriff Ross Mellinger who lately posted, then deleted memes mocking Kataluna in the swimsuit compitition left a searing mark on her soul.
However a real competitor and a gracious girl Kataluna Enriquez is aware of to embrace what makes her stunning. This couldn’t be extra emphatically put when Asya Department, Miss USA 2020, actually embraced her on Instagram in a scorching Instagram slo-mo video.
