Tiara Activism

Tiaras are not just for birthdays and weddings and silly princess games anymore. They are for taking over the world!

1. High school elects boy as prom queen

From today’s Los Angeles Times:

Prom queen Sergio Garcia

Sergio Garcia, 18, spent most of his years at Fairfax High openly gay and wanted to be part of the Los Angeles school’s prom court — but not as prom king. He felt that vying for prom queen would better suit his personality, so he decided to seek that crown, running against a handful of female classmates…. Read full story. 

2. (Beauty) Queen calls for gay rights in India

Former Miss Universe Celina Jaitley launched a campaign this month for gay rights in India.  I couldn’t find a picture of her wearing a tiara, but this is some amazing headgear:
When I openly stood up for the human rights of sexual minorities, I got a whole lot of support from people all over the world; at the same time I have been accused of being a lesbian (which is all right) and, more importantly, scorned and abused for standing up for the sexual minorities’ rights. Before I begin I would like to explain my sexuality: I am a straight woman with a whole lotta balls!  Read full blog post and sign Celina’s petition for the repeal of India’s anti-sodomy law.

3. Cop dresses in drag for a cause …
and ’cause he likes it?

From the Orlando Sentinel earlier this week:
Amvets fundraiser
Former police officer Harry Doremus, 50, walked into his veterans post wearing an evening gown slit up the side, makeup, a red wig, high heels and pantyhose [AND a tiara]. The stunt helped Doremus collect $1,000 for the fight against breast cancer, an amount he donated a week later to the Lake County division of the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure… Read full story.

4. O.T.A.

From the tiara archives (ok, YouTube), this video clip is from “The Last of the Two-Dollar Bills” and shows Wonder Woman, who is the Original Tiara Activist, using her tiara as a boomerang in order to catch Nazi war criminals.

You read it here first: It’s about changing the world, one tiara at a time.

  2. Thanks for posting these. I love them. My son is a lover of tiaras (and princess wear in general) but by the time he was five he started being concerned about the reactions of others and among other things, changed his passion for pink to red. I have convinced him that since rock stars can wear whatever they want, he can too. So he tells everyone he is a rock star and who can fault him for that? I hope for a midwestern world in which he can run for prom queen, king or anything he wants.
