School: Who Are We To Say Homecoming King And Queen Have To Be Boy And Girl?

Who are we to say a homecoming king and queen have to be a boy and a girl?

That's the stance Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland is taking in order to be more inclusive, according to the Washington Post.


Student Government Association President Jacob Rains summed it up by saying, “It provides an opportunity for all students to be involved in something that was exclusionary. It is really not our job, especially with a gender-neutral and transgender population at B-CC, to tell people that boys have to be kings and girls have to be queens. Who are we to put people into those categories?”

Instead, the school will simply have two homecoming finalists who could be opposite genders or the same.

Rains added, “It just felt like this was the right time to do this. We looked closely and decided: ‘Hey, this is a problem with the current system, and we should go and solve it.’”
