The pageant world has been thrown into a tizzy after Patricia Yurena Rodriguez, the Spanish senorita who placed as 1st Runner Up to Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler of Venezuela finally came out in the open and declared that she is a lesbian.

Patricia declared her sexuality indirectly by posting in her Instagram account a picture of her and her lover Vanesa Cortés, better known by her alter ego Vanessa Klein, a popular singer in her own right.
The beautiful Patricia who first won as Miss Espana 2008 wasn’t able to represent her country in the Miss Universe 2008 pageant because of age eligibility. She took part instead in the Miss World tilt where she landed in the Top 15.
She competed again and won the Miss Espana title and finally represented her country in the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant held in Moscow, Russia where she became good friends with roommate & eventual winner Miss Venezuela. Miss Philippines Ariella Arida was also one of her closest friends.

Had Patricia been crowned Miss Universe instead of Gabriela, it would have been a publicity stunt that Donald Trump would surely milk for all its worth.
Patricia would always be remembered as one of the most stunning candidates to ever grace the Miss Universe stage.
Good luck and cheers!
