Gomez was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2021 last September, making history as the first openly gay woman to win the competition. She succeeded Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo, who finished top 21 in the global Miss Universe pageant earlier this year.

Before winning the Miss Universe Philippines crown, Gomez had been vocal about her relationship with Jagdon.

For the beauty pageant’s interview challenge last August, Gomez mentioned doing several hobbies such as boxing and scuba diving, which she did with Jagdon. She also said they had been together “for six years, going seven in a few months.”  /ra
