prom-king

I remember senior year of high school I went to this Christian charter school and all of the male classmates were outrageously homophobic, because the guy every guy (for some reason) wanted to be friends with was violently homophobic. Anyways, he ran for prom king unopposed and the prom royalty committee needed to find at least one other senior to run but no one else wanted to run. So, they sneaked my name on there without my consent, and I ended up winning in a landslide and the homophobic asshat only got two votes (one of which was his own vote).

Fucking goddamn Kings and Queens 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖😩👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗😩😩💗💗💗💗💗💗

Wisconsin teen Ash Whitaker had dreams of being prom king at Tremper High School in Kenosha.  

Whitaker is currently a junior and did the volunteer hours necessary to apply for the prom king position.

However, according to Whitaker, the school’s administration will not let him run because he’s transgender. 

“My principal rejected that, saying I am not a boy.” Whitaker says he would only be permitted to run for queen. 

Now he and his peers are fighting back.

In addition to the sit-in, an online petition has garnered over 5,000 signatures since it went live on Sunday.

This all adds insult to injury, as Whitaker says the school discriminated against him in regards to bathrooms as well.

Okay this is the most important thing I dug out from my senior year of high school (im a sophomore in college now)

But in my senior year of high school I decided I would run for prom king in my super catholic high school were EVERYONE pretty much knew I was a giant flaming lesbian.

And I wrote a fucking ESSAY that I gave to the student activity director (also my history teacher) and my English teacher

Who probably showed my essay to the rest of faculty

And just look at my fucking campaign it’s golden


Despite the administrations protest–Thursday night I was crowned my school’s Prom King at senior prom.  As a Latino Transgender man I felt like this stride meant everything to me after how long it took me to get to this point.
I did this for Blake Brockington. I hope he is always remebered, and he motivated me to do this.  He will always be a king, he inspired me. Every transgender kid’s life matters and is valid. I am so proud of my senior class, and hope to see so many transgender boys and girls get crowns. Let’s make crowns more common than coffins.

there is a possible world where i don’t go on tumblr that day and we never meet, and i drop out of college with no motivation and join the army. i die in combat. you decide living really isn’t for you. there is a possible world where i am married with two children and we bump into each other at a coffee shop and i know it’s too late for us but somehow i still need you. there is a possible world where we have healthy childhoods and we’re the trophy couple, prom king and queen, perfect. there is even a possible world where we are safe in our love. but this is the alpha world, we are who we are and we are here together. we only have each other and i am content with that. i don’t want any other world but this one.
