The story of Erin O’Flaherty and her triumphant journey after receiving backlash for being the first openly gay Miss America contestant.
Alexis “Lexy” Kadey is a recent graduate of Lindenwood University. Lexy actually competed against Erin at Miss Missouri, the year Erin won. After Erin was crowned, she noticed how her life dramatically changed and the backlash she had received for being the first openly gay Miss America contestant. As a close friend, and a filmmaker, Lexy thought it was her obligation to share Erin’s story in hopes of bringing awareness to LGBTQ equality. Lexy is a public speaker and will be doing a TEDX in the fall.
