This is Scarlett Lenh. She’s 16, she’s trans, and she’s been crowned homecoming queen at Sand Creek High School in Colorado.
'It was really exciting. It felt really good. I couldn't stop smiling,' she said, according to the Associated Press, after finding out about the vote.

'One of my friends mentioned it, and I didn't think anything of it because I didn't think I'd be nominated. But, now, it really matters to me,' the student said.
'This is something I've wanted to do since my freshman year. I want people to be themselves and not feel uncomfortable in their own body and mind.'
!!! So exciting and inspiring! Congrats to her!

Dear pan and ace people,

I like how this is focused on Drag Queens instead of trans women, women who are leaving abusive relationships, closeted non-het/non-cis people, you know people who legit might die cause of bullshit like this.
You remember the trans women who works for facebook? The one who made the new gender options? Yeah right now shes fighting this, for us. Shes fighting her own employer to make things right. I just thought you should know.
What trans woman who works at fb?!
Her name is Brielle Harrison. Shes been responsible for the terf pages getting banned and has been a huge help in getting facebook to change policy.
So what you’re saying is that once again drag performers are putting on a show while a trans woman gets things done.
