I Was Elected Prom Fairy But I’m Really A Dude-  Oh, these graduating senions and their crazy fads. Just about anything goes nowadays, as long as it’s in line with what’s cool and hip. The old days of driving around drinking cheap wine and smoking oregano that you thought was just really old-brown pot have been replaced by ecstasy fueled raves and trips to Prague for the jet-setters of the world.  The urban kids cut school and have giant skateboard parties in the mall parking lots and it pisses all of the mall walkers off.  Hell, the nerds even get into the act and have a contest to see who can hack the school web page and  post beaver shots with the principal’s face plastered all over the place.  But these kids in Los Angeles openly broke the mold when they elected a prom fairy, thinking it was a chick, but they were pissed when they found out she was really a dude in drag.

An openly gay cross-dressing teen has been voted prom fairy at his Los Angeles high school in a campaign that began as a stunt but ended up spurring discussion on the campus about gender roles and popularity.   The boy said he felt invincibly gay when he was crowned queen of the Fairfax High School dance yesterday.  He said he saw fliers advertising the prom and the election but they didn’t specify that the fairly must be female.  He thought the role would suit him better than prom king because he is a proud fairy and he shows it. “I don’t wish to be a girl,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “I just wish to be myself, kind of like Peter Pan.  He was free do do as he pleased, he was a fairy, and nobody knew he was a dude either” (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090528/ap_on_re_us/us_male_prom_queen).

The senior class president said she and a bunch of other students were initially against the idea but became convinced he wasn’t just an attention-seeking clown when he showed up in in a pink dress and platinum blonde wig.  Another student said she voted for him because she supported the gay community and thought they had a right to be voted prom fairy.  Although many students were supportive of the little prom fairy’s run, others were pissed off and didn’t understand why a gay dude chose to run for a position that goes to a girl.  “I’m not really happy about that shit Ese,” said a gang banger from East L.A. “He should’ve run for prom king, but that would have been worse for him Holmes.  We would have stomped him out in the barrio if we caught him wearing a pink dress.  A fairy outfit like a bull fighter yes, but a pink dress, no way Jose.” 

Despite some casual sex under the gymnasium bleachers and puddles of puke in the boy’s and girl’s restrooms, things went smoothly as planned.  By the time the crowning cermony rolled around everyone was wasted and really didn’t care if there was a prom fairy or prom queen because he looked like a she in a pink dress.  The moral of the story is that it prom queens are the same as prom fairies, even if it’s a dude.
