Gay young man crowned prom queen at Los Angeles high school

Sergio Garcia has been crowned prom queen at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. "You don't have to be a certain gender to accomplish things," said Garcia, crowned on May 23. Although he admitted to considering going for prom king initially, he said ultimately he identified more with being a queen. Plus, he added, it was more of a challenge to go after the title of prom queen. The openly gay teen's campaign began as a stunt but ended up spurring discussion on the campus about gender roles and teen popularity. (AP Photo/Los Angeles Times, Liz O. Baylen)

Im a G/W/M crossdresser here in Atlanta GA. I want to let the entire world know that DISCRIMINATION is ALIVE & WELL in ATLANtA G-A! Because i was crossdressed while walking in a city of Atlanta public park, Buckhead Baseball KICKED ME OUTTA THE PARK, with the help of the APD! And all i was doing was WALKING ON THE PUBLIC SIDE WALK, EXERCISING MY RIGHT TO WALK IN A PUBLIC PARK. And im a U.S. LAW ABIDING CITIZEN! ILLEAGEL IMMAGRANTS HAVE MORE RIGHTS THAN ME! AND IT WAS'NT THE 1ST TIME THAT IT'S HAPPENED! DO NOT VISIT ATLANTA! STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM IT.
