Friday night highschooler Cassidy Lynn Campbell, a transgender student at Marina High School in Huntington Beach, CA was crowned homecoming queen, a huge step towards transgender equality.
This isn’t the first time a transgender teen has won homecoming queen, it’s the first time at Marina High School and Campbell hopes that her achievement will go beyond her town.
Despite the fact that this is totally awesome, the teen was subjected to many a negative comment (no surprise there) from ignorant and uneducated onlookers. She uploaded a tearful video to YouTube where she said she should have been happy, and she doesn’t understand why people must be so hateful.
Thankfully the comments on her video (as far as GCR can tell) are full of support. You go, Cassidy. Don’t let the haters get you down.
