Previously, she was the winner of Queen California, Queen USA 2016, Super Sireyna WWUSA, Queen of the Universe, and Miss Silver State USA.
The winner of the beauty contest in the USA Miss Nevada 2021 for the first time became a transgender woman Cataluna Henriques. She announced this on Instagram.
So, the 27-year-old Cataluna became the first transgender woman in history to win the competition.
The girl вЂњfoughtвЂќ with 21 rivals. In November of this year, she will go to the Miss USA 2021 pageant.
However, this is not the first beauty contest in which Cataluna won. Previously, she was the winner of Queen California, Queen USA 2016, Super Sireyna WWUSA, Queen of the Universe, and Miss Silver State USA.
But the essence of this victory is that she competed with girls who did not change their gender.
вЂњMany thanks to everyone who supported me from the first day. My community, you are always in my heart. My victory is our victory. We just made history. Happy and proud, вЂњ Henriques wrote on Instagram.
It should be noted that Miss Nevada-2021 was born in the Philippines, and at the age of 10, she moved to the United States. From birth, she was a boy. But it is known that she experienced physical and sexual abuse as a child. Now she works as a model.
Recall that the American transgender actress and model India Moore became the face of the latest issue of V Magazine.
