“Congratulations to our recent Miss Nevada USA @mskataluna 👑 History made!” Miss Nevada USA penned on their Instagram page alongside the picture of Enriquez in a rainbow gown with her new title and strap.

Before Sunday’s tournament, which was carried out at South Point Hotel Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, Enriquez gained a victory in the Miss Silver State USA promenade, according to her Insta.

She will now contend for the Miss USA crown in November.

Next after her accomplishment, Enriquez commemorated her achievement in a post on Insta Monday.

“Huge thank you to everyone who helped me from day one. My community, you are constantly in my heart. My victory is our triumph. We just earned history. Happy Pride,” she inscribed alongside various rainbow heart emojis.

Enriquez also published a picture before earning the title and disclosed that she had prepared the rainbow dress herself through her apparel chain, KatalunaKouture.

“In appreciation of pride month, and all of those who don’t get an opportunity to disperse their hues. ❤️🧡💛💚💙” she put down the custom dress.

In addition to acquiring KatalunaKouture, Enriquez is a healthcare administer and fashion designer, according to her brief memoir on Miss Silver State USA’s Insta page.

“At an adolescent age, Kataluna battled numerous challenges in her life,” the page reads. “Now she utilizes her life events and shares it in her forum #BEVISIBLE, a movement to battle disgust through vulnerability.”

“As a survivor of physical and sexual misuse and an elegant Transwoman of color, she intends for shattering obstacles and embodies those who aren’t always characterized and begins again to assist several non-profit groups and LGBTQ+ youth,” the post added.
