Smells like victory

Via Miriam at Feministing, I learn that the Los Angeles Times reports on Fairfax High's 2009 Prom Queen.
[Sergio] Garcia, 18, spent most of his years at Fairfax openly gay and wanted to be part of the Los Angeles school's prom court -- but not as prom king. He felt that vying for prom queen would better suit his personality, so he decided to seek that crown, running against a handful of female classmates.
On Saturday night at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, wearing a charcoal-gray tuxedo and a black bow tie, he was named prom queen.

“I felt invincible,” Garcia said.

Mr Garcia, this blog salutes you as a Great American.
