The photo showed the pair cuddling in bed while staring lovingly in each other's eyes. Cortez is a singer disc jockey on the Spanish house circuit.

The 24-year-old Yurena was Miss Spain 2008 and Miss Spain 2013. She was also a Miss Universe 2013 first runner-up.

Yurena's revelation was accepted in social media, which led the beauty queen to thank people for understanding her sexual preference. She tweeted, "Thanks to everyone for the comments ... I published the picture spontaneously and in an impulsive manner."

With her admission of being in a lesbian relationship, Yurena became the first openly gay national beauty queen in Spain.
