Gibraltar is getting ready to once again celebrate Pride month this June. This event is celebrated in many countries around the world and is essentially a call for greater unity, visibility and equality for the LGBTQ+ community.
After a dramatic evening in St Michael’s Cave Jessica Baldachino was finally crowned the 50th Miss Gibraltar, flanked by 1st Princess, Kerrianne Massetti, and 2nd Princess, Christina Ainsworth.
On a night that was supposed to be remembered for its historical significance, charting half a century of Gibraltar Beauty Pageantry, its glitz and its glamour, this 50th Miss Gibraltar Show will sadly be forever remembered as the one with the two-hour blackout.
Shortly after the opening dance sequences St Michael’s Cave suffered a power cut that brought GBC transmission and the pageant itself to a very abrupt halt, prompting huge debates and speculation on local social network pages.
