Boy Attends Prom in a Short Pink Strapless Dress and Gets Crowned Prom Queen
You’d expect the award for “Prom Queen” on a Prom night to go to a girl, but instead, a boy held the honors. A 15-year-old boy surprised everyone by dressing up as a drag queen on his prom night, and duly won the award of Prom Queen.
Lees Brook Community School’s prom night witnessed a stunning and surprising spectacle as Xavier Parkins; a 15-year-old student attended the Prom night dressed like a drag queen. Xavier appeared wearing a short pink strapless gown and heels.
He didn’t stop there either; he also completed his feminine appearance by rocking blonde hair, and his makeup wasn’t far from perfect either.
XAVIER WAS SUPPORTED BY HIS MOM AND BROTHERS
It must have taken a whole lot of courage for the 15-year-old Xavier to appear in that way and his mother was left proud with his achievement. She revealed that his courageous act had left her humbled and proud.
She also said that many people were not happy for Xavier at first, but those negative thoughts quickly dissipated after he received a rousing welcome and reception at the prom.

She stated that her son had always wanted to win the award for "Best Dressed," and wanted that of "Prom Queen" in particular. She also lauded the courage of those who voted for him.
The lad also received support from his brothers, with his older brother sending him a text on the night of the prom, telling him he loved him.
IT TOOK A LOT OF WORK TO GET XAVIER LOOKING LIKE THAT
Getting Xavier to look perfect as a drag queen wasn’t an easy task, as he spent six hours getting ready. He designed the gown himself, in conjunction with a dressmaker, while he did his makeup, hair, and nails all by himself.
All those efforts were not in vain as he became the first boy ever to win the award of Prom Queen in the school.
He also had fears before the prom night, but all those fears were gone when everyone warmly received him. The reception also made him non-attentive to naysayers.
THIS IS NOT HIS FIRST TIME APPEARING AS DRAG IN PUBLIC
The young Xavier who is currently preparing for College also appeared in drag when he performed at a Charity event held to raise funds for a young boy with cancer. He has also been commended for his bravery by Toni Jacobs, who is a trustee for Derby Pride.
THE GIRLS HATE IT WHEN A BOY TAKES THEIR CROWN
In a related development, girls of Manhattan’s La Guardia High school showed their displeasure after an 18-year-old boy took home the award of Prom Queen. The boy, Matthew Crisson, identifies as a “non-binary” and won the award for prom queen.
The girls, however, were having none of it and stated their displeasure at the boys taking home both awards for Prom Queen and King.
