The 27-year-old Miss Nevada was crowned Sunday at a celebration in Las Vegas. Enriquez later posted an honest post on Instagram in which he thanked “his community”.
“You are always in my heart. My victory is our victory. We have made history,” he stressed. Demonstrations took place in 1969 at the Stonewall Hotel in Greenwich, a village in Lower Manhattan, New York.
Enriquez said the victory was a beautiful end to LGBTQIA + Pride Month. The 27 – year – old is the first transgender person to win the Miss United States crown.
