    Prom queen in a dress? Not this guy this night

    Prom queen in a dress? Not this guy this night
    Flanagan High School senior Omar Bonilla went from prom queen hopeful to not being able to go to prom at all. The school says he brought that punishment on himself.


    After coming out of the closet this, his senior year at Flanagan High, Omar Bonilla decided to take it a step further: run for prom queen.

    He almost won -- Bonilla was among the top three vote-getters -- but in the past few days, it all unraveled.

    Fearful that other students would try to beat up a prom-goer in drag, the school administration asked him to wear a tuxedo to Friday night's dance. And after two meetings with the school principal to plead for the right to wear a dress, Bonilla was slapped with a two-day suspension, the timing of which meant he couldn't go to the prom at all.

    As students were racing off to prom, Bonilla was putting on his blue sequin dress -- but only to pose for a Miami Herald photographer.

    ....

    Drew confirmed that administrators were worried about safety.

    ...

    The suspension, said Drew, the spokeswoman, was solely because Bonilla had ignored security personnel after parking in the wrong place. Bonilla said he was in a daze that morning and he didn't hear the security guards.

    Now to be fair, you gotta see the pic:





    Some DUers could be turned? ;)

    If he had tanned his arms they would have let him go, I guess. :)

    I would submit that damned few broads have a cleft chin, which means this dudette is a manlander to any discerning eye.

    No kidding - but even if he looked outstanding, I'd still be against it.

    The school said originally that he could go to prom, just not in drag. I think their stated reason, that they are afraid other kids will beat him up, is a valid one. This is called accomodating the kid within reason.

    Then they suspended him for a petty reason, so he can't go to the prom at all. I don't know anyone who ever got suspended for a parking rule violation. I got called to the V Principal's office for it once, and I had a pretty valid reason (early morning field trip/lights weren't on in the student lot yet). If the kid challenges the suspension, he's probably got pretty good cause unless suspension is spelled out as the appropriate punishment for a parking violation in the student code of conduct.
