Concord Students Choose Transgender Student as Homecoming King

Although we hear more and more of stories such as this, the quotes in this article were especially touching.

Concord High in Concord, New Hampshire, elected Ray Ramsey, a transman, homecoming king. But this quote below is the most touching.

…after the cheers from the crowd and hugs from friends, he walked over to his dad. Standing there, his dad grabbed him by the shoulders, looked him in the eye and said, “I am so proud of you.”

“He’s just been through a lot, and he’s just a really strong person,” said Anna Robert, the homecoming queen and Ramsey’s good friend. “When I heard his name called, I was like, ‘I can’t even believe it,’ you know?”

Imagine a world where such open and complete acceptance was the norm, rather than the exception. Is it possible? Can we do it?
