The Happy Nappy Bookseller for letting me know about the first transgender Prom Queen at a public school in the U.S.
Her name is Andii (formerly Andrew) and she was up against 14 girls to win. Wow, what a wonderful accomplishment!! It's great that something like this can actually happen these days. It's great that Andii's personal dream of becoming Prom Queen came true, despite the gender she was born as. To her, she's a female and that means she would not run for Prom King.
Another thing I read in the article that was exciting is that not only is Andii in the school's Gay Straight Alliance, but so is Juan, the Prom King. Isn't that wonderful?
It wasn't entirely easy for Andii to run as there were some people fighting to get her name off the ballot. Thankfully, it worked out though.
Please leave your thoughts on this event in the comments. As long as you aren't rude, we won't delete you!
Oh, and please still leave a comment in the following post...my interview with director, Scott Boswell. Don't leave your thoughts about the interview here as Scott might not see them. Thanks!
