Biological Male Identifying as Woman Wins Miss Nevada

On Sunday, Kataluna Enriquez made history.


At the Miss Nevada USA pageant, the 27-year-old acquired the crown.

Only months earlier, the beauty queen was topped with a tiara as Miss Silver State USA.


What’s so monumental about mopping the floor with the other entrants?

Kataluna is a biological male.

Yahoo! News notes the timing of Sunday’s win:

Just in time for the tail end of this year’s Pride Month, Kataluna Enriquez gave everyone a new milestone to celebrate.

The contestant’s been at it a while.

2016 saw a first try at transgender pageants, leading to triumph as Transnation Queen USA.

Runners up were Mississippi’s Fontasia (left) and Georgia’s Kylie Love (right):


Tennessee was repped by Garnet Rubio:

Gadfrie Arbulu gave it a go for D.C.:

Among the judges was none other than Republican California gubernatorial hopeful Caitlyn Jenner:

Per Yahoo!, on the road to victory, Kataluna’s conquered more than runways.

Enriquez’s accomplishments go beyond her pageant titles, though. From modeling to designing her own gowns (which she wore like a true queen while competing for the Miss Nevada USA title), to being a health care administrator and human rights advocate, she quite literally does it all.

On top of that, as Miss Silver State USA, Kataluna launched the #BEVISIBLE campaign.

As stated by Miss Silver State’s Instagram page, #BEVISIBLE “combat(s) hate through vulnerability.”


“As a survivor of physical and sexual abuse and a proud Transwoman of color, [Kataluna] aims to break barriers and represent those who aren’t always represented and continues to support numerous non-profit organizations and LGBTQ+ youth.”

The last few years have been big for biological males identifying as women.

In 2019, Victoria’s Secret welcomed underwear model Valentina Sampaio:

Last year, Valentina made Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue:

Three years prior, Playboy set the stage:

And in 2018, Miss Universe saw contestant Angela Ponce pounce:

So what’s next for Kataluna? If the advocate is crowned Miss USA on November 9th, the Miss Universe pageant will see its 2nd biological male.

Second is okay, but maybe first is better — Miss Nevada enjoys being unique.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal Kataluna made that clear


“Personally, I’ve learned that my differences do not make me less than, it makes me more than. And my differences is what makes me unique, and I know that my uniqueness will take me to all my destinations, and whatever I need to go through in life.”

Kataluna Enriquez is blazing a path.

As Pride Month becomes more prominent — and as Joe Biden’s transgender policies take hold — I expect many, many more will be hot on that trail.

Maybe so hot, they’ll win a women’s beauty pageant.
