The Drag Queen revolution is upon us and everyone is celebrating, including institutions of higher learning like George Mason, which announced Friday it has selected a drag queen to be its homecoming queen.

This is Sparky Collins reporting for Gambling911.com.

I'm fresh from my photography stint at New York's coveted Fashion Week.

Like Yours Truly, George Mason University Senior, Ryan Allen, dresses like a woman.  And like Yours Truly, all the other women flock to him.

Allen, who is gay and performs in drag at nightclubs in the region, said he entered the homecoming contest as a joke, competing as Reann Ballslee, his drag queen persona.

He is thrilled though to be named homecoming queen as this celebrates George Mason's diverse student body.

"I was very touched by how Mason was so supportive through the whole process of allowing a boy in a dress to run for homecoming queen," Allen said in a phone interview. "It says a lot about the campus that not only do we have diversity but we celebrate it."

The senior from Virginia's Goochland County won the pageant Saturday at a sold-out Homecoming basketball game against Northeastern University.

George Mason is famous for its basketball program.
