Jenelle Hutcherson will make history as the first openly lesbian contestant in the Miss Long Beach and Miss Southern California cities pageant this weekend:
The 25-year-old master hair artist will also be the first to be rocking a Mohawk, tattoos, a pierced nose and small black ear plug-ins.
“I’m not a down-in-heels type of girl,” Hutcherson said in a phone interview.
For the swimwear competition, Hutcherson will be flaunting her handmade boy shorts and tank top inspired by 1930s men’s and women’s swimwear. And for evening wear, she’s ditching the gown and heels for a royal purple tux.
