Erin O'Flaherty, 23, became the first openly gay Miss Missouri and so the first lesbian contestant to compete for Miss America too.

"I'm on cloud nine really just to be Miss Missouri. I don't know that I intended to be the first (lesbian winner), but I am. So I'm very excited about it," O'Flaherty said.

The competition for Miss America will end on September 11 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
