Lesbian Wins Prom King At Her School

“I know who I am and wouldn’t feel comfortable winning ‘Queen.’”

1. This is Ola Wolan (on the left). She just won Prom King at Lane Tech High School in Chicago.

2. Ola told the Windy City Times:


Honestly, I don’t fit the gender stereotypes of a girl and I’m not trans[gender]; I know who I am and wouldn’t feel comfortable winning ‘Queen’ and then having to dance with a boy.

4. She got an incredibly positive response.


… it probably was one of the most surreal moments of my life when everyone started chanting my name. Never in a million years would I have expected that, hearing so much love toward me for who I am and being open [about my sexuality].

5. Ola shared her winning dance with her girlfriend, Amber Lynn Phillips.

All together now: “Awwwwww!”

6. Congratulations on your newfound royalty, Ola!
