An Orange County, California transgender boy was elected homecoming queen, PEOPLE.com reports.
16-year-old Cassidy Lynn Campbell wakes up early every morning to transforms himself into a girl. Cassidy looks more feminine than his biological female counterparts who don’t put in half the effort.
Cassidy, who was born Lance Campbell, hopes his new title will influence other troubled teens who suffer from Gender Identity Disorder (GID).
“I wasn’t doing this for me,” Campbell told ABC News. “I was doing this for so many others around the nation.”
Campbell added: “They think I’m just a boy doing this for fun … just a boy dressing up as a girl and trying to win a crown when that is completely the opposite of what it is. I’ve always seen myself as a girl,” said Campbell, who has a series of of YouTube videos tracking his transformation from boy to girl.
Campbell’s mother, Christine Campbell, was also amazed by her son’s achievement. “I never would have thought in my lifetime that I would see this,” she said. “It’s wonderful. She really did it.”
