[> [> [> Subject: Absolutely not. Miss America grassroot level is a pretty conservative milieu to start with and when Deidre won, we were in the middle of the George W. years. The understanding of the LGBTQ issues was significantly weaker by general population. Deidre would have never won Bama had she been out, nor the overwhelming majority of other state titles.
