History is made as trans teen is voted homecoming queen in Orlando, Florida

You could write a movie about this, or maybe even a musical, but history was made this week when students at the Olympia High School in Florida elected trans teen Evan Bialosuknia as their homecoming queen. A first for the school and possibly even the whole state. 

 

In a state that has a republican governor who continuously pushes anti-trans rhetoric (as well as damaging anti-vaccine lies) it’s particularly heart-warming to hear this news. Speaking about her win, Evan said “It made me feel like I actually belonged. Not just like a joke. Cause that was one of my fears, I was in bed one night like, ‘What if they were just doing this to laugh at me?’”

 

In a charming moment, she talked about her homecoming king, she said: “There’s only good energy, just a great person. He just made me feel like any other girl.”

 

Bialosuknia came out as trans recently and has only been living her truth for a year or so and says she has “a long way to go and more change is coming.” She continued: “Looking back it doesn’t even feel like that’s me? I played football for like six to eight years and I remember during practices I would stare at the cheerleaders because I wanted to be with them.”

 

Congratulations to Evan! See her triumphant Instagram below.
