DAYS OF LOT
–  A 17-year-old boy has been named prom queen at his high school and says he’s making a point about gender labeling and discrimination. Nasir Fleming won the title last week at Danbury High School, where he’s a popular senior. He was nominated as prom king and as prom queen but decided to be considered only for queen. Fleming told the News Times newspaper ( http://bit.ly/1tOB5xa ) for a story on Tuesday that he’s been openly gay since sixth grade and has struggled with bullying. He said he isn’t sure whether the students who submitted his name were making fun of his sexuality but decided it was a good opportunity to make a point about the importance of being who you are. “Either way, I’m still fabulous,” he said. Fleming said students at the prom were supportive and erupted in cheers when he won.
