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:
“I’m still scared but it’s about being brave, I want to tell other transgenders that it’s ok to be out, we’re not different.
You just have to be who you are, don’t be scared to open up.”
Way to slay, Brooklynn!
