White Station High School in Memphis, Tennessee just crowned their Homecoming Queen. And the student who won the honor was a male - his name is Brandon Peters.
By all public accounts, Brandon doesn't consider himself transgender. But that didn't stop White Station HS from making the unorthodox decision to have a male be crowned the Homecoming "Queen."
While there is some controversy about the high school's choice - Brandon has been receiving TONS of support on the high school's Facebook page.
Here's the picture of Brandon, wearing a dress - and being crowned Homecoming Queen:
And here's a sample of the support that Brandon's receiving on social media:
Congratulations! Brandon you look beautiful and your school is awesome. I bow to you and your classmates for the amazing young adults that you are.
it’s Brandon’s right to run for homecoming court under Title IX. It’s the students’ choice of who they want to support as homecoming royalty. I’m exceedingly proud to be the principal of our amazing school. You don’t have to agree but disrespectful comments will be deleted. WSHS loves and supports everyone regardless of who they are or what they believe. Thank you for the love and light from so many of you.
