Destiny Hartis had made up her mind. She would be elected Digital Harbor High School's prom queen at the school's senior prom on May 15, she remembers thinking that night -- even if it meant spending part of the dance gathering votes from her fellow classmates. "It was my day," said Hartis, 20, who attended the end-of-year event with her cousin, Kerstin Jones, in a long blue dress. "I was going to win. " And she did -- becoming the Baltimore high school's first transgender student in faculty memory to walk away with the prom queen's crown and sash.

As a supporter of the Fairness For All Marylander's Act, I want to thank The Sun for running Kevin Rector's article, "Transgender student named prom queen at Baltimore high school" (May 28). When Destiny Hartis graduates, leaves Baltimore and crosses over into Anne Arundel County to attend a nursing program, all of her basic rights will travel with her thanks to the Fairness For All Marylanders Act. Prior to this update to our anti-discrimination law, Ms. Harris would have lost the rights she had at home in Baltimore City the moment she crossed over into Anne Arundel County.

"Looking for Gatsby: My Life," by Faye Dunaway with Betsy Sharkey. Simon & Schuster. Illustrated. 416 pages. $25 Faye Dunaway is a rare combination of silky glamour and rapacious dedication to art, but she was also blessed, at least in her youth, with luck. She was endowed with classic bone-deep beauty that her own intelligence and the ministrations of others cultivated into style, and she was accorded recognition from the high-throttle star machine that in the late '60s and early '70s picked her up and, as long as she sold tickets, packaged her as the American woman of the hour.

Our favorite gleeks go to prom and there's a sweet surprise ending! Confession: I'm a 16-year-old girl trapped inside of a 24-year-old body and thus, I was probably more excited about this week's"Glee"than normal people would be. Student body president Brittany S. Pierce decides this year them should be dinosaurs. Thus, Prom-asaurus is born, where hair gel is banned because it didn't exist during prehistoric times. Blaine, naturally, is heartbroken. And the prom court nominees are...Finn, of course, Rick the Stick Nelson (who?

In the new murder mystery series Prom Queen, the action begins when Ben, a star student-athlete, receives an anonymous text message predicting that he is going "2 kill the prom queen." The show's fans, however, will learn his victim's fate not in hourlong episodes broadcast each week on their television screens, but in 90-second installments streamed daily on their computers, cell phones and iPods. Produced by former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, the series will premiere tonight on the popular Web site, MySpace.

IndyCar racing reminds me of the prettiest girl in school. She's the one who set the standard for "cool" and the one who everyone dreamed of dating. We want IndyCar in Charm City because we think it will put us in the cool group with the other popular cities ("Race to remove Grand Prix barriers," Sept. 3). In an attempt to win the prettiest girl's affection, I can remember carrying extra books, wearing ridiculous things like parachute pants and admitting to watching "Melrose Place," much like I put up with closed roads, barriers keeping me in my neighborhood, incredibly loud noises and extra traffic in the heart of downtown on a long weekend, all with the intention of grabbing her attention and hoping that maybe she'll love me back.

Dear moderately successful professional athlete: A word, if I may. I've always liked trash talking. Admired it, really. If you're between the ages of 18 and 39, it's part of our generation. It's all we've ever known when it comes to competition. We're the children spawned by the greatest trash-talking movie of all time, White Men Can't Jump. For the most part, it's in our DNA now. We can't resist. But seriously, moderately successful professional athlete, please heed this advice. Shut up. That means you, Philip Rivers, who had the gall to taunt, tease and, in general, completely spaz out in front of Colts fans Sunday after the San Diego Chargers defeated defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis.

Prom night is just around the corner, and while teen-age girls everywhere are scrambling for the right frock, so are their TV counterparts.Since Marcia Brady first put on an A-line formal, TV's teen-age beauties have gone to the prom. But on TV shows today, the sweet and lacy formal is being replaced by the dramatic evening dress. Just as many teen-agers seem to be growing up faster, so are the girls starring in shows such as "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Major Dad." In fact, when TV teens go to the prom they rival their older counterparts on "Dallas" for dazzle and flash.

Stoli Oranj martini, straight up with a twist Sascha's 527 Cafe Sascha Wolhandler describes herself as "an aging prom queen." However, most of Baltimore knows her as the dynamic caterer/restaurateur behind the 25-year-old Sascha's Catering and 8-year old Sascha's 527 Cafe, both of which she runs with her husband, Steve Suser. Wolhandler also works as a food stylist on movies filmed around Baltimore. Currently, she is doing just that for the Renee Zellweger/Chris Noth film, My One And Only, now in production here.

Glenelg senior centerfielder Ashley McGlynn is making the most of her final days of high school. The highlight for her so far was being named the prom queen, but not far behind was helping the Gladiators capture the county championship last Wednesday with a 3-1 upset win over defending county champ and Class 2A state champ Hammond. McGlynn had two singles off All-Metro sophomore pitcher Stephanie Speierman, drove in one run and scored the game-winning run. The Gladiators lost to Hammond, 9-0, during the regular season.
