Bailey Anne Kennedy has made history by becoming the first transgender woman to be crowned Miss Maryland USA. The 31-year-old also holds the distinction of being the first Asian American and military wife to win the title. In an Instagram post, Kennedy addressed the challenges she has faced and emphasized the importance of being true to oneself. She expressed her commitment to creating a world where children can be themselves without fear of judgment. Kennedy, who advocates for military spouses, plans to use her platform to support active duty service members through organizations like the USO.

Kennedy described her win as a "whirlwind" and acknowledged the significance it holds for LGBTQ youth who may feel like they don't fit into societal norms. She also spoke about her age, highlighting the lifting of age restrictions in the Miss Universe Organization, which allows women of all ages to compete. Kennedy hopes that her victory will open doors and hearts, promoting understanding and acceptance of the diverse aspects of the LGBT community. She aims to make a positive impact on society through her work with the USO program.

As the newly crowned Miss Maryland USA, Kennedy will now prepare to compete for the title of Miss USA in Los Angeles on August 4.
