History has been made at the Miss America pageant as Miss Missouri is set to become the first EVER openly Lesbian contestant to compete for the crown!
The pageant has been going for ninety five years, and even though gay women have competed in state wide competitions, Miss Missouri-Erin O’Flaherty, is the first EVER to make it! She’ll face stiff competition on September 11th, but she seems ready to go!
Josh Randle, a spokesperson for the Pageant, said that they were happy that the event reflects a changing America with the inclusion of Miss Missouri. Good luck Erin! We’re sure you’ll bring home the crown!
