First Lesbian Homecoming King & Queen in America Crowned at CA High School
Rebeca Arellano and Haileigh Adams bucked with tradition at California’s Patrick Henry High School this weekend by becoming the first lesbian couple to be named both Prom King and Prom Queen.
The outpouring of support from their classmates seen in the video below will melt even the most jaded, icy heart. It’s absolutely inspiring to know that not all schools are fighting to ban even the mention that gay students exist - and that at least this one respects and honors LGBT students.
But while the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, several anonymous classmates have complained that they are ashamed of the school’s decision to end the tradition of naming a boy and a girl to the throne.
Well said, your highness!
Both girls have been out since freshman year, and began dating in February. Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!
