So exciting!

Andrew Viveros has made HISTORY after being the first transgender person to be crowned prom queen at a public school.

On behalf of the Trevor Project, Andrew delivers an inspiring message to ANYONE who is being bullied and losing hope for their future, saying:

"I want everyone who is watching this, everyone that has been bullied, taunted or put down because they're different, to know that I'm living proof that it gets better."

Check out the video above to meet the recently crowned queen and always remember — IT GETS BETTER!

    Queen Andrew you are a beautiful person inside and out. Keep fighting the good fight. You are such a strong and brave person and I am so proud of you and your school. Congratulations on your crown and for reaching so many people with your beautiful message.

    Maybe the first trans prom queen in the United States, not the world. At my high school, a public school, there was a transgender boy who was both class president and prom queen. I'm not trying to diminish Andrew Viveros, but you can't just go around making hugely inaccurate claims.

    Nice message!

    I get it, but really guys, I don't. Even if you're the most fierce queen I'd ever met, I'd say let them have their prom moment out of respect. I'm gay, and it's going too far. Bullying can't hurt someone who can't be hurt mentally, but this would have upset me. You can adopt your own way of thinking without stomping on what has been tradition for straight society. It's getting ridiculous. It's a fight for rights we already have. All men are created equal. Marriage is a legal agreement, although, performed in a religious setting. It's not worth arguing about, you have the right, DEMAND IT!

    I believe that a transgender by the name of Crystal Vera, from my hometown, Fresno, CA, was actually the first transQueen 4 years ago.

    Maybe the first in Florida, but not the US.

    Congrats however to Andrew, thats great that you won. You should be proud.

    That's not fair to the girls at that school!!! you can't have your cake and eat it too. If anything he should be prom king!! btw i support gay rights, but not making someone else's right unequal for the rest.

    Re: jeeperscreepers – This is just proof that gays don't want equality. They want special treatment and attention. Minorities are like that. They cannot accept that things are a two way street. The way its looking white straight males will end up being a minority.

    He was probably voted in as a joke. Need I say more?

    Re: NookiesWA – People like you should be stoned then put on a crucifix to then be set on fire. :P

    Re: sarahbella246 – Yes, and very well spoken too.

  13. 13

    Brunette Kristen Cavallari… Just sayin. And I would vote for the person who I thought earned it. Were they a nice person do well in their classes. Ish like that not based on if they are GLBT.

    Beautiful and real! It's nice to have an It Gets Better video from someone who is about the same age as those who would utilize the Trevor Project resources. What a wonderful person.

    What a joke, this is a mockery nothing to be proud about

  16. 16

    Don't be a drag just be a queen! Love it!

  17. 17

    I don't think this is fair at all. I can't put on a poodle costume and go compete in the Westminster Dog Show, no matter how shiny my fur is or how good I am at jumping through hoops. I get equal rights, but this is excessive.

  18. 18

    You gotta be fucking kidding me! What the hell is going on?

  19. chiro says – reply to this


    I wouldn't bcz it's not fair! He's a man dressed as a woman. He could've very easily been prom king. I'm sorry but that's going too far! It's tradition and he stole it!

  20. 20

    Not the first. Crystal (Johnny) Vera. was crowned prom queen at Fresno's Roosevelt High School in 2007.

    Re: NookiesWA – why are u on this site if u hate gays so much?

  22. 22

    I can't believe some of these comments. Are you really that narrow minded?? Honestly, you're entitled to your opinion, but- you make me sick.
    Andrew didn't want to be elected for prom KING because he feels that he is a girl in a boy's body. Therefore wanted to be in the running for Queen not King. It's that simple.

    Overall, I can't believe people still gotta be hating on each other in the 21st century. You always gotta find someone to repress. Why? To feel better yourself? To feel superior? It's downright scary frankly.

    It's not that long ago people tried to get rid of all the jews. That women weren't allowed to vote. And being gay is "wrong". If you're not straight you face a lot of problems. Like marry the one you love is such a struggle. I can go on and on.

    So what if two men/women wants to get married and have kids and live in a house with a dog and a Volvo? You don't have to live in the same house with them, you won't have to watch them love each other. So what's really the issue here? How does it affect you directly?? Why can't people just let other people be?

    I could end by stating "btw, I'm straight", as if my opinions are more "admirable" if so — but I shouldn't have to. So I'm just gonna leave it unsaid.
