Transgirl Allowed to Wear Dress to Prom

Tony Zamazai
"I'm actually going to be able to go to prom as who I really am."

With the help of the ACLU, transgirl Tony Zamazai will attend her prom at Spring High School in Houston dressed appropriately as a female.
This story came to me by way of Google and some of you readers (thank-you).

What is remarkable to me about the story is the reporting by KTRK TV, the ABC affiliate in Houston. The reporters got the pronouns correct referring to the student as "she" or "her" as appropriate despite the incongruity of her appearing in boy mode throughout the story.

KUHF FM and Houston Chronicle also got the pronouns correct.

Now that's progress!

On the other hand, the Fox and CBS affiliates in Houston used the wrong pronouns.

Shame on them.


  1. Cute girl, I wish her all the best.

  2. Pronouns are just that, pronouns, nothing more, calling them by another name does not change what they are, they are labels! It would seem this polite society just can't get passed itself.

    I wish her a wonderful time at her prom!
