LOS ANGELES - An openly gay teen is the new prom queen at Fairfax High School.
Sergio Garcia, 18, was crowned queen Saturday night at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
"I feel invincible," Garcia said wearing his rhinestone studded tiara.
A few days earlier, he gave a speech that touched a nerve with students: "At one time, prom may have been a big popularity contest where the best-looking guy or girl were crowned king and queen. Things have changed and it's no longer just about who has the most friends or who wears the coolest clothes," Garcia told a gymnasium full of seniors.
"I'm not your typical prom queen candidate. There's more to me than meets the eye."
