Prom King: Alyssa Hernandez

Volume 1; Issue 3; May 15th, 2019

Prom, a formal dance held by a high school at the end of the academic year for hardworking seniors. Typically at this event there is a Prom King and Queen, elected with a prom court. Usually a male student will run for the position of Prom King, while a female student will run for Prom Queen.

Amidst controversy, Alyssa Hernandez, a biologically female student has taken the courage to run for a position which is traditionally run for by a male; this position is "Prom King." According to Alyssa, she wants to run for Prom King because she wants to make a political statement.

"There are people out there who don't identify with the male and female genders that are associated with King or Queen, and I wanted to say that it's okay to try to put yourself out there. We get to choose the amount of power we see in labels and by running, and I also wanted to try to get more gender neutral titles for future proms." - Alyssa Hernandez

On April 26, 2019, Alyssa Hernandez won the position of Prom King. Let us hope that her winning the crown will help with the acceptance of gender-neutral roles.
