Pride News: History Maker Kataluna Enriquez, first Trans Woman to represent Nevada in Miss USA 2021!

There are so many groundbreaking things that happened this year within our community but since I am also a big fan of beauty pageants, I thought I should share the history-making feat of Kataluna Enriquez – the first transwoman to win the Miss Nevada title, and is set to represent the state in the Miss USA pageant later this year.

Filipino-American Transgender woman Enriquez wore this rainbow-inspired gown and bested 21 other candidates from the state to win the coveted title!

If she wins the Miss USA title in November, she will become the second transgender woman to participate in the Miss Universe beauty pageant after Spain’s Angela Ponce competed in 2018. Way to go sis!!! Congratulations!

Meet ANTM Cycle 22 Model Mame Adjei

MameMame Adjei
Age: 23
Hometown: Silver Spring, Maryland
Height: 5’10” [antm] 5’9″ [miss usa 2015]

As of this posting, Mame is currently competing as Miss Maryland for this year’s Miss USA beauty pageant [finals night to be held next week.] Of course we all know that the upcoming cycle of Top Model was already taped for months now so this endeavor of Miss Adjei is kinda giving me the vibe that she didn’t win the competition. In the history of ANTM (as far as my fuzzy memory could remember, the beauty queen types are almost always criticizes for being too beauty queen – remember the very religious Robin of Cycle 1? The beautiful Indian girl from Cycle 9 or 8?) I could be totally wrong though, because this girl is just too beautiful for words!
