See that guy?
My name’s Eli and I’m just your typical Homecoming King of 2012..
but I’m a trans* guy.
I ran for Homecoming King not for the popularity or the attention but to just see if I could do it. It’s my last year of highschool, and I’m openly out.
I was against 2 football playing jocks that everrrrrryone knew, and I was known as “the girl that’s apparently a dude now”.
On Friday, September 14, 2012, was Homecoming Night, and the guests were given Homecoming ballets once walking into the doors. I instantly knew that I was going to lose. While the night was going on, I suddenly had many friends and strangers tell me they voted for me.. as the end of the night arrived, and the King nominations were told to come front and center to be announced, I felt sick..
All of a sudden, I heard my name, and I was shocked. Hearing the screams and applause from the crowd, I was given my sash and my crown. I got congratulated by soooo many people.
The best part was having 4 random teachers come up to me and say that the admired my courage to even run for Homecoming Court and that this showed that a lot of people are open minded in my school now.
This helped my self esteem by so much. I feel like me being trans* is not going to stop me from making a stand and making a difference.
I DO feel like a king.
