A Spanish beauty queen has posted up an intimate photo with her girlfriend on Instagram, becoming the first national pageant queen to openly admit that she’s gay.
Patricia Yurena, two-time winner of the Miss Spain contest and a runner up in last year’s Miss Universe competition, published the sultry snap on the social media site this Tuesday.
Titled “Romeo and Juliet,” Yurena can be seen in bed gazing lovingly into her girlfriend’s eyes. The love of her life is Vanesa Cortes, a singer and DJ on the Spanish House circuit, The Telegraph reports.
“I published the picture completely spontaneously and in an impulsive manner. Thank you for all your support,” Yurena tweeted.
She folllowed the first picture up with another photo on Friday.
“I don’t regret what I did and I did it because I am happy about what’s going on in my life,” the 24-year old told La Opinion de Tenerife about making the photos public.
