Djuan Trent, pictured right, came out of the closet in a blog post in response to her state’s decision to not recognize out-of-state gay marriages.
“I am queer,” wrote Trent, who was crowned Miss Kentucky in 2011.
“For a while, I struggled with the decision of whether or not it was necessary to ‘come out,’” the 27-year-old natural beauty wrote in a post on her blog. “…I have realized that there is really no way for people to know that I disagree with their views or, even moreso, to know that they are talking about me, unless I actually open my mouth and say it. I am queer.”
According to Yahoo news, Trent is the first publicly known lesbian contestant to have competed at a national level.
