Las Vegan Kataluna Enriquez will become the first openly transgender woman to compete for the title of Miss USA after she was crowned Miss Nevada on Sunday.

According to CNN, 27-year-old Enriquez beat 21 other candidates to represent Nevada in the upcoming Miss USA pageant, which will be held on Nov. 29.

If she wins, according to CNN, she will be the second trans woman to join the Miss Universe pageant after Spain's Angela Ponce in 2018.

Who were the judges that decided the winner? Was it The Backstreet Boys?

I love this. More proof every single day that men are better at being women than actual women, except for the important biological stuff. Get rekt, feminists!

Nevermore

They might as well do away with all beauty pageants. Beautiful people are all racists. Ugly people have no pageants.

He is a very pretty dude but I would think a woman should win a women's beauty contest. More embarrassment for Nevada.

He didn't compete as a female, he would have lost. He made sure he competed as transgender and used the press to get the win. If he was interested in competing as a female, it would have been kept between him and the director, he knew he needed the help from the media coverage to win. The judges should be ashamed of themselves, but again, this is Nevada, they aren't known to be female friendly. Nobody watches Miss USA anymore anyway since it turned into a less intelligent, less female version of Miss America.

As a transgendered conservative, I do not approve of this at all. This and sports. It's not right.

Wow, how sad for Nevada that it's come to this. Transgenders competing in women's beauty contests and winning. Women will get the short end of the stick if this is allowed to continue whether in sports or other things. Transgenderism is a mental problem, but it's being elevated as something quite normal. Just remember who is perpetrating all of this stupidity.

This is typical for Nevada, to them the only thing that defines a woman is a pair of breasts. They just proved it again. Congrats for reducing the image of a female to just anatomy.

LMAO. He beat out 21 other women. Sure...let's just pretend that the left's mental illness of wokeism wasn't involved with that. How embarrassing for NV.

Nevermore

Welcome to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Another loss for real women. First sports, now this. Where are all the fake feminists?

jeezlouise

Stop promoting this degeneracy you sickos. Stop destroying childrens minds and bodies for your radical non binary sociopathic agenda to eliminate women from society...this is discriminatory to actual women. The Globalist agenda to destroy society is demonic. This is nothing more than propaganda.

False!

She's a beautiful woman

Nevermore
