Speaking after her crowning, Katalina said;
“I’m the first trans woman and trans woman of color and it’s time that our voices are heard,” she said. “It’s amazing because it’s Pride month and it’s the 52nd anniversary of Stonewall so it’s a special moment for my community.”
Katalina first took part in transgender pageants in 2016 when she was working as a model.
In March she won Miss Silver State USA pageant, a preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant.
Coincidentally, she was crowned Miss Nevada in the same month that the LGBT community is celebrating pride month. In the United States of America, the month of June is considered a “pride month”.
During pride month, there is promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group.
