The man who was elected homecoming princess at Florida State University eight years ago said Friday he has no regrets, but that he is unsure he would go through the process again.
William Wade ran for homecoming princess in 1980 under the name "Billy Dahling, the queen with a difference." He drew 150 votes in a contest that normally attracted light turnout by fraternity and sorority members, and won."I wanted to expose the superficiality of deciding who the best people were. Just voting for someone because you like their picture is crazy," he told the Florida Flambeau, an independent newspaper serving FSU.
