So this year, Brooklynn, who's in the process of transitioning, donned a pretty pink gown and went as her "true self." "I'm not hiding anything anymore," she says. "I'm still scared but it's about being brave. I want to tell other transgenders that it's okay to be out. We're not different."
Clearly, her classmates are seriously supportive of her new identity and voted her prom queen. Congratulations to Brooklynn! Being yourself is a beautiful thing.
