Transgender Teen Elected Prom Queen

A Florida transgender high school student was elected prom queen Friday night.

“They called my name and I was in total shock,’’ said Andii Viveros, a 17-year-old who was born male but has lived as a female for the past two years. Despite being bullied and taunted, the McFatter Technical High School senior has a strong support system — including a new principal who encouraged her to run for prom queen.
