A Spanish beauty queen has posted up an intimate photo with her girlfriend on Instagram, becoming the first national pageant queen to openly admit that she’s gay.
Patricia Yurena, two-time winner of the Miss Spain contest, in 2008 and 2013, and a runner up in last year’s Miss Universe competition, which was held in Moscow, published the picture on the social media site.
Titled "Romeo and Juliet", Patricia can be seen in bed gazing lovingly into her girlfriend’s eyes. The love of her life is Vanesa Cortes, a singer and DJ on the Spanish House circuit.
Later she thanked her fans for the true reaction to her decision to come out in a follow-up Instagram post, adding: "I published impulsively, I appreciate the outpouring of support. Thank you".
