mollieWell, this is kind of fun, and I have to admit, it had never occurred to me that there’s never been an openly gay pageant contest before, because I really don’t think about pageants very often:

Mollie Thomas will be the first openly gay participant in the Miss California pageant or any other major pageant for that matter!

On Wednesday, January 4th, Mollie will be having a send off party as she begins her journey to become Miss California on Friday January 6th.

Well, all the best to Mollie, then!
