Each of these women labored for they statuses but are now only remembered as their single defining characteristics. The sad reality is that O’Flaherty will no doubt end up on this list of names to be remembered as the first openly gay Miss America contestant. In O’Flaherty’s case, she entered the competition fully aware and prepared for the attention the media would bring to her sexuality.
