Lesbian Couple Named Homecoming King and Queen

Homecoming King and Queen

Who cares about William and Kate when there’s way bigger royal news happening on this side of the pond? Last Friday, a lesbian couple was named both the Homecoming King and Queen at a San Diego high school.

Yeah, you heard that right. King and Queen! During the school’s pep rally, a lesbian student named Rebeca Arellano was crowned Homecoming King (the first female king in the school’s history).

Just a few hours later at the dance, her girlfriend Haileigh Adams was named Queen.

While there have been some haters, Rebeca said most of the feedback has been positive. “We have a lot of support, but there are also a lot of people who are angry about it,” she told ABC News. “[They’re] saying they’re embarrassed and that it’s wrong for a girl to take the spot of king. But there’s no other way for us to run as a couple. It’s not really fair for us not to have the right to run as a couple.”

The couple, who started dating sophomore year, said they hope to inspire the LGBT community.

“The fact that other people are feeling more confident about themselves or feeling like they might have a chance at doing this, it’s opening doors,” Haileigh said.
