You betta werk, girl!

Caitlyn Jenner may be getting most of the media's attention after revealing her true self with her Vanity Fair cover last week, but she's not the only transgender role model who's been honored recently.

That's because Brooklynn Buenaventura from Washington was just selected by her peers to be prom queen on Saturday!

Prior to her transition, Brooklynn, then Bruce, was actually voted into the prom court, but she attended that dance in a tux — We bet getting to party it up in clothes that actually felt right on her was an even better prize than the crown!

Although, that extra sparkle probably didn't hurt!

Before her win, Brooklynn had nothing but words of encouragement for other transgender individuals, saying:

| Filed under: SchoolTransgenderLGBT

Barnard College is taking a HUGE step in the right direction!

It looks like women's colleges around the country are finally starting to become more accepting of transgender students, and we mean that LITERALLY!

Earlier today, it was announced that Barnard College in New York City would begin accepting transgender women as students on their campus!

As a women's college, Barnard never had a policy in place when it came to situations like this. However, a spokesperson revealed that they have NEVER had a transgender student in the past!

While the new policy is a step in the right direction, there are still a few kinks to work out.

This Lunch Lady Was Fired For Giving Free Meals To Hungry Students!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad SadFoodSchoolViral: News

The kitchen manager at a Colorado elementary school got fired for feeding hungry kids for free.

What the heck??

Della Curry was the kitchen manager at Dakota Valley Elementary School, up until she got fired on Friday.

The Aurora, Colorado lunch lady says she was let go because she was giving free meals to students who couldn't afford to pay for their food.

But she has no regrets about being a compassionate soul, saying:

"I had a first-grader in front of me, crying, because she doesn't have enough money for lunch. Yes, I gave her lunch."

Naturally, education officials got a ton of crap when this started making headlines.

But now, the school district released a statement claiming the 35-year-old's termination had absolutely nothing to do with the lunches she was giving out:

"Miss Curry was not dismissed for giving free food to financially disadvantaged students. Numerous documented incidents resulted in the action taken. We are unable to fully disclose all of the details concerning her dismissal without her permission."

Hmmmmmmm. Well this just got slightly more vague and confusing.

A spokesperson for the school district expressed his frustration with the alleged he-said-she-said debacle, saying:

With spring drawing to a close, one of the things we look forward to most is seeing which graduating classes around the country make a spectacle of their big day and go viral.

You see, the Kahuku High School Class of '15 in Hawai'i decided to all get together to choreograph a gigantic nine-minute long dance routine on the bleachers during the ceremony.

And as if that wasn't enough, the music they chose was an amazing mash up of some of our fav songs from Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, Fifth Harmony, and a ton of other A-Listers!

We so wish we were there in person!

Ch-ch-check out the heartwarming viral moment (below)!!!

Vince Vaughn Weighs In On Gun Control With THIS Controversial Comparison!

| Filed under: PolitikVince VaughnGQSchoolControversy

no title

Vince Vaughn has never been one to hold his tongue, and his recent statements are bound to ruffle a few feathers.

In the July issue of British GQ, the 45-year-old dishes with the magazine about the second season of True Detective, but the conversation quickly turns political.

From saying Edward Snowden is a hero to calling America's crusade against drugs 'ridiculous', the actor doesn't hold back with his opinions.

[ Related: The Trailer For Season 2 Of True Detective Is HERE! ]

However, his views on gun control will certainly shock many readers.

On whether individuals should have the right to bare arms, the Couples Retreat star said:

"I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don't have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It's not about duck hunting; it's about the ability of the individual."

He later goes on to theorize that the mass shootings that have happened in recent years — notably 2012's Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children and six staffers dead — are due to the country's ban on weapons.

"Take mass shootings. They've only happened in places that don't allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings. They do not want confrontation. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."

So does this mean that the Minnesota native believes guns should be allowed in schools?

It turns out… yes.

"Of course… Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won't rid the world of criminality."

Do you agree with Vince's controversial statements regarding gun control?!

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Love Child With His Former Housekeeper Has Graduated High School — But The Terminator Star Was Nowhere To Be Found!

Cue that Vitamin C song because it's time to graduate!

On Thursday, Joseph Baena, famously known as Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child with former housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, successfully obtained his diploma from Frontier High School in Riverside, CA!

What a HUGE accomplishment!

The 18-year-old was decked out in a blue cap and gown and wore several tassels around his neck, which may indicate he graduated with honors!

Smarty pants!

Unfortunately, the action star was not in attendance. It may have been for the best, as his presence would most likely take attention away from the ceremony.

In case you didn't know, the 67-year-old had an affair with Miz Baena in 1997 while he was still married to Maria Shriver.

However, it wasn't until 2011 when the existence of his love child came to light. The bodybuilder wasn't aware he was Joseph's father until he began seeing a resemblance throughout the years.

The politician and Patrick Schwarzenegger's mom divorced that same year, and are currently in the midst of divvying up their $400 million fortune.

Congratulations to Joseph for completing high school! May your future be bright!
