Male Florida Teen Wins Prom Queen Crown, Loses Family

Nineteen-year-old Florida high schooler Omar Bonilla was one of three finalists for prom queen at Flanagan High in Pembroke Pines. And in Constance McMillen-esque maneuver to keep him from attending prom as his drag persona Allison Rodriguez, the school suspended him for two days for illegally parking in a visitor’s parking space. Bonilla won the title of prom queen anyway by attending Pridelines a local gay prom. Afterward, his parents rewarded him by disowning him.

Bonilla’s not the first teen to get booted from his family for being gay at prom. The high school says they told Bonilla not to wear a dress to prom out of concern for his, ahem, safety.
