For the first time, the title of Miss Silver State USA was awarded to a transgender person.

For the first time, the title of Miss Silver State USA was awarded to a transgender person.

Kataluna Enriquez was crowned in the biggest preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant.

Enriquez, 27, started competing in transgender pageants in 2016 when she was working as a model.

“I wanted to share my story and present that I was more than just a body,” says Enriquez. “With pageantry, people think it is only about beauty. But it’s how you present yourself, what you advocate for, what you’ve done and the goals you have.”

Enriquez, who started competing in cisgender pageants at the beginning of last year, says that, while she does advocate for transgender rights, it is not her main focus.

“One thing that is important for me is inclusivity, diversity and representation. It’s something I did not have growing up and is still lacking in today’s world,” says Miss Silver State.

In a question and answer portion of the pageant, Enriquez was asked to describe an obstacle she has faced and is overcoming.
