Okay, ladies, now let’s get in formation.
America Chavez is the latest incarnation of Miss America. She is a Latin-American LGBTQ teenager, and she has her own comic-book series titled America.
Instead of wearing all black like Beyoncé, America is decked out in stars and stripes.

The series will be written by author Gabby Rivera featuring the queer Latina superhero, who will “defend the Earth from alien hordes while traveling through different dimensions to attend class and make time for a personal life.”
“I realized early on that Gabby and I were both Bey fans and knew we had to homage her in the book,” Quinones told EW. “America is a comic that is all about representation, feminism and fighting for what’s right. America Chavez hits hard, looks fabulous and makes no apologies along the way. I could think of no better parallel than Beyoncé. So glad to see it being received so well. See y’all in March!”
America comes out in March 2017.
