Patricia Rodríguez & Vanesa Cortes

Patricia Yurena Rodríguez Alonso (born March 6, 1990 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is a Spanish beauty queen and actress who captured the crown of Miss Spain 2013 and was a top 15 semifinalist in Miss World 2008. In 2013 she won the title Miss Spain 2013 and represented Spain at Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow, Russia. Miss Spain Patricia Yurena came out of the closet via an intimate photo of her and her girlfriend Vanesa Cortes which she posted to Instagram. Said Yurena in a follow-up message: "I published the picture completely spontaneously and in an impulsive manner. Thank you for all your support." Yurena is the first openly gay national pageant queen.

At 17, Rodríguez was selected Miss Spain 2008, the official representative to Miss Universe, in Oropesa del Mar, Castellón.

Due to Miss Universe eligibility regulations that state every contestant must be 18 before February 1, Rodríguez was ineligible to attend Miss Universe 2008 in Nha Trang, Vietnam and first runner-up Claudia Moro of Madrid went instead.

Rodríguez was sent to compete in Miss World 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she placed as one of the Top 15 semifinalists.

Rodríguez won the title of Miss Spain 2013, gaining the right to represent Spain at Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow, Russia.

Rodríguez represented Spain at Miss Universe 2013 on November 9, 2013 where she competed to succeed Miss Universe 2012, Olivia Culpo of the U.S., eventually finishing as 1st Runner-Up to María Gabriela Isler of Venezuela (her roommate). She is only the second Spanish woman to place 1st Runner-Up (the first one was Teresa Sánchez López in 1985). She is also only one of three former Miss World semifinalists to place in the Miss Universe semifinals, the others being Ada de la Cruz of the Dominican Republic in 2009 and Yendi Phillips of Jamaica in 2010 (coincidentally all three ladies finished as 1st Runner-Up).
