Blacksburg High School student Jake Boyer, from Virginia, has been crowned prom queen.
WDBJ7 has the story:
Some Blacksburg High School students had a different choice for prom queen this year: the winner was a man.
Jake Boyer was senior class secretary, a choir member, editor of his school’s literary magazine, and now prom queen.
“This was as much a social experiment as it was a fun thing to do,” explained Boyer.
He’s a well-known and outgoing student at Blacksburg High School who had a big announcement this past school year.
“I came out of the closet this year, and I already knew everyone at school was incredibly open about it,” Boyer said.
He kept it a secret for a year, but his friends and family were immediately accepting. So, it wasn’t a surprise when friends urged him to run for high school prom queen.
