Out Lesbian Wins Finland's Top Model

25 year old Nanna Grundfeltd is the first openly gay contestant to have won the title of "Top Model" in Finland's version of "America's Next Top Model." In fact, Nanna is the only lesbian contestant to win the top prize in over 30 versions of the hit show around the world.

The Search for Finland's Top Model (in Suomen Huippumalli haussa) follows the same format as the America's Next Top Model, but with more emphasis on photo shoots than runway competitions.

During the competition, the contestants were challenged to paint a word on their clothing which best described them. Nanna chose the word "homo," which is Finnish for "gay."

After that episode, Nanna responded by stating, "I'm so proud to be gay. I'm so lucky: I'm a woman and like women too! There's nothing better. I thought at first I'd put something more than just "Homo" on the hoodie, like "homo — who cares" but ... It was a strong word and that was needed."
