Cassidy Lynn Campbell wins OC Homecoming Queen breaks down In tears

It was amazing enough for Cassidy when she learned she was among the top ten contenders for homecoming queen so when she won it, was almost to much.

The enormity of her victory is in sharp contrast to the struggles Pennsylvania trans students still have just getting their authentic gender identity recognized by their schools.

“And then I realized it wasn’t for me anymore and I was doing this for so many people all around the county and the state and possibly the world and I am so proud to win this not just for me, but everyone out there,” Campbell said.

The 16-year-old did face some negativity over her nomination from fellow students, but she and Principal Paul Morrow are proud of the way the majority voted.

“Were proud of the message from home of the Vikings has been one of equity, acceptance, tolerance and respect,” Principal Morrow said.

Ohio: Columbus City Council Passes Transgender Anti Discrimination Laws

Columbus Ohio. From TransOhio. The Columbus City Council passed transgender anti discrimination on Monday 16, 2008.

TransOhio blog "The Columbus City Council voted 6-0 to PASS the ordinance revisions which will add the following classes to Columbus City Code (chapter 2331): Age, Disability, Sex, Military status, Familial status and Gender Identity and Expression."

The Columbus City Council then went on to ask the State Legislature to follow suit according to 365

This is indeed a tremendous day in our struggle for equality. Every step forward for transgender people is a leap for all LGBT people.

Being a native of Ohio this warms my heart. Thank you to all that made this happen!
