Captioning the image “Romeo and Juliet,” Rodriguez later posted her appreciation for everyone’s comments and said the decision to post the picture was made on impulse.

Rodriguez has added additional photos, including a selfie with her girlfriend, Vanesa Cortes, and a photo Sunday of the two of them on the beach.

“Kicking that door out. Congrats. Brave girl,” one commenter wrote on the first photo.

People magazine reported that Rodriguez told a Spanish newspaper, “I do not regret what I did because I'm thrilled with what is happening to me.”

Some commenters on People’s article criticized the beauty queen for the intimacy of her photo. “I don't want to see a picture of these two people being intimate and it has nothing to do with her being gay. It has to do with the fact that people should keep their private lives PRIVATE!!!! (Hence the meaning of the word),” one person wrote.

Rodriguez was a two-time Miss Spain and a runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant.
