For those of you who are questioning whether him being voted prom king was a mockery or whether his classmates were sincere about it, I can verify that we were 100% sincere when we voted for him as our prom king. He is the single most popular student in our school. There were some groups at the prom who were angry when he won prom king, but nothing ever came of that but some booing when he was crowded (which was almost drowned out by the applause and screaming.) Derrek is more than just a cross dresser with the will to fight. He was never doing this for himself, it was always to protect future students from having to go through all of the hardship he’s been through. He is one of the most caring people I have ever met in my life, and it’s a honor to know him.
