Running for Prom Queen ... King ... Er ...

Fresno High School senior Cinthia Covarrubias, the school's first transgender prom king candidate, tries on her tux at AJ's Tuxedo shop Friday, April 20, 2007, in Fresno, Calif. School officials added her name to the ballot for prom king this week although she is biologically female in what gay rights advocates call a landmark victory for on-campus gender expression. (AP Photo/Gary Kazanjian)FRESNO, Calif. - When school officials announce the name of the Fresno High School prom king on Saturday, Cinthia Covarrubias will be wearing a tuxedo just like the six boys vying for the honor. Administrators agreed to reverse a district protocol this week that limited males to compete for the title after Covarrubias was nominated by her classmates. Source
