Trans Colorado girl crowned homecoming queen


A transgender student from Colorado has been picked as her school’s homecoming queen.

Sixteen-year old Scarlett Lenh is a junior at Sand Creek High School. She received the majority of votes from her classmates and was given the honor during yesterday’s, 12 September, school football game.

'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.

Initially, she was surprised by her nomination. There were three other nominees.

'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.'

Sand Creek High is located Colorado Springs. The leaders of the district, Falcon School District 49, released a statement supporting the selection.

'The leaders at Sand Creek High School and in District 49 respect the decision of the Scorpion student body in electing their homecoming court,' district spokesman Matt Meister said, as reported by the AP.

'Our board policy sets the standard that we do not exclude any person from participating in any program or activity on the basis of gender identity and gender expression.'

Even if you are used to being “sensitive” or “too emotional” like me… I think it’s great to embrace and accept your emotions and not feel ashamed if you ever get really sad or excited or anything.
