Making History: Transgender Student Elected Prom Queen

Johnny Vera (right), known as “Crystal” by classmates, became the first transgender student in Fresno history to be elected prom queen at Roosevelt High School. Loved by his peers and active in the school and community, he is a member of the cheerleading squad and gets good grades. Vera’s desire to be prom queen stemmed from his attempts to promote tolerance and acceptance for all students. He was inspired to run by Cinthia Covarrubias, a female student who made national news by being the first female candidate to run for prom king. I’m proud of Johnny’s accomplishment, because that takes alot of courage. If only the rest of the world would open up thier eyes…

    I am an ENTERTAINMENT reporter! I am not claiming ownership of these photos, because I did not take them. I am also not claiming truth in these reports, because I have no way to prove that everything everyone says is true. I try to use "reportedly" and "allegedly" as much as I can for things I'm not sure of, but keep in mind that sometimes I may forget to put that in. I use various sources to find my information: news reports, articles, other websites and blogs. I try to credit everyone for any story I have borrowed, but if I forget just ask me to add you to my blogroll and cite you as the source. Lastly, I would greatly appreciate if you would like to add tips to my site. Email me at, and I will DEFINITELY give you the credit you deserve.
