Gender-fluid HS seniors crowned prom king and queen: 'The LGBTQ really took over last night'

A pair of gender-fluid Ohio high school seniors recently were crowned prom king and queen, the Dayton Daily News reported.

What are the details?

Kettering Fairmont High School 18-year-olds Rosita Green and Dai’sean Conley were named king and queen, respectively, last month, the Daily News noted.

The day after the coronation, Conley wrote on Facebook that "the LGBTQ really took over last night" and "is it really an ironic moment if there isn't a group of haters?"

While Conley and Green's fellow students chose them, Conley told WDTN-TV that quite a number of them seemed unhappy over the announcement.

“Even when I was given the crown, and I put on my head, there’s a lot of boos in the crowd,” Conley noted to WDTN.

They also got negative comments online, the station said.

“It’s very demeaning,” Conley added to WDTN. “It takes a lot for an individual to be able to bring themself back to who they are and believing in themselves and being fully confident and not letting things like that pull them out of who they are as a person.”

The board of education at Kettering City Schools also heard from residents who want to prevent such a king and queen crowning from reoccurring, the station noted.

Local resident Joe Overholser said he believes prom kings and queens should be biological males and females.

“'Til the last few years, about all the history in the world, it’s kind of been understood,” Overholser said. “So ... for whatever reason the last few years, it’s has been questioned. And I don’t think that’s a good thing for society.”

One woman against the prom vote told the board there should be a "policy requiring prom court candidates to run from a position linked to their biological sex," the Daily News reported.

The woman added that “schools harm children when they play along with this charade … what Kettering allowed to happen at prom is normalizing something that isn’t normal," the paper added.

WDTN said the school board isn't taking any action since the members historically allow the student council to run the prom and related planning.

Anything else?

A man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly phoning a threat to the high school against all students who identify as LBGTQ, the station noted in a separate story.

Kettering Police identified the caller as Brandon Moore of Beavercreek, WDTN said, adding that he was charged with telecommunications and disturbing the peace violations. Beavercreek is about 15 minutes east of Kettering.
