Iris Mittenaere was crowned as Miss Universe less than a week ago and she is possibly already making a big impact. The French beauty queen is rumored to be a lesbian and she could possibly be the first openly gay titleholder. We are sure her sexuality doesn't change who she is, but it would be a huge advancement to have an LGBT icon advancing equality. Mittenaere could be a trailblazer and change everything.

Although nothing has been confirmed, speculation on social media started after people starting to dig for information and photos of her. On her Instagram, they found photos of her with fellow beauty queen winner Camille Cerf. In the pics you can see both of them very friendly with each other. See the pictures down below and tell us what you think!

Iris was born North of France in a town called Lille. Mittenaere has kept herself busy the last 5 years by pursuing her degree in Dental Surgery. She has always been fond of extreme sports, travelling the world and cooking new French dishes. She describes herself as fresh, funny and caring. She enjoys making others happy, especially when volunteering at Bienvenue-Tongasoa and Les Bonnes Fées. She wants to advocate for dental and oral hygiene.
