Transgender teen crowned prom queen

Transgender teen Andrew Viveros, 17, was crowned prom queen on Friday at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale.
Viveros, a graduating senior at McFatter Technical High School in Davie, said he wasn't sure he would win.
"Then they called my name and I was in complete shock," said Viveros, a Davie resident and president of the school's Gay-Straight Alliance. Viveros said some students campaigned against him but others praised him for his courage.
