Transgender woman wins Miss Nevada USA pageant

 The title of Miss Nevada USA has gone to a transgender woman for the first time.

Kataluna Enriquez was crowned the winner Sunday in the pageant at the South Point hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

She was the winner of the Miss Silver State USA pageant in March, a preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant.

Enriquez, 27, took part in transgender pageants in 2016 when she was working as a model. She began competing in cisgender pageants last year.
