Spain's national beauty queen winner has revealed that she is in a lesbian relationship, posting a photograph of her and her lover in bed on the social media website Instagram.
Patricia Yurena, who was crowned Miss Spain in 2008 and again in 2013 and came runner up in last year's Miss Universe competition, is the first openly homosexual national winner.
"I don't regret what I did and I did it because I am happy about what's going on in my life," said the 24-year old from Tenerife.
The photograph showed Miss Spain and her girlfriend, Vanesa Cortes, a singer and DJ on the Spanish House circuit, lying together on a bed with the caption "Romeo and Juliet".
Her decision to go public about her sexuality won her widespread support across social media sites.
