By Out.com Editors
Although she didn't crack the Top 20 in the Miss California competition, openly gay contestant Molly Thomas seems to have had quite a good time just participating.
The 19-year-old, who currently holds the title of Miss Abbey West Hollywood, told TMZ that the contest wasn't only a way for her to go where no out lesbian had gone before, but it was also a chance to take in some lovely scenery.
"There are 270 girls and we had about seven dressing rooms. Everyone was pretty frantic. It starts in swimwear... I wasn't complaining," she told the website. "I had a little bit of a kid in the candy store syndrome, but I was very good.
And although she didn't take home a crown, or any of the other contestants, Thomas has vowed to run again next year.
