One thing that most of us remember and associate with our High School years is the celebrated Homecoming dance. Along with Homecoming, there is naturally the Homecoming King and Queen competition. Traditionally, there is one male and one female that are crowned as King and Queen. Calabasas HIgh School of Los Angeles, California broke the tradition and awarded Lily Cohen and Greta Melendez as the two Homecoming Queens. This is significant, because the two teen females happen to be a couple. Melendez also happens to be the “president of the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance” organization.
What a victory! Their crowning has encouraged similar situations to occur.
