Transgender Teenager, Crowned Homecoming King

Congrats to Mr Ramsey for his crowning and three cheers for his school mates who voted him in by a landslide. 🙂

In a historic moment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens everywhere, a transgender New Hampshire teen has been voted Homecoming King by a “landslide” victory at his local high school.

Concord High School’s first transgender student to receive the honor, Ray Ramsey took the royal title to the sound of thunderous applause and cheers from his friends and peers. According to the Concord Monitor, Ramsey’s father greeted him after he accepted the crown, taking Ramsey by the shoulders and looking him in the eye, saying, “I am so proud of you.”

Nominations for Homecoming Court at Concord High School function through individual clubs and organizations. Ramsey received his nomination through Tide Pride, the school’s outlet for LGBT students and allies.
