Florida School Allows Boy to Run for Homecoming Queen After First Rejecting Request

A Florida high school is backtracking its decision to deny a boy the chance to run for homecoming queen because of his gender.

Cypress Creek High School is now allowing student Anthony Martinez to run for homecoming queen after saying that the principal who initially denied the request never consulted with the district’s central office, WFTV reported.

Martinez became emotional when Cypress Creek High School’s principal, John McHale, told him he could not run for homecoming queen because he was a boy.

“I started crying. Like, it made me really emotional considering how hard I was trying to be queen,” Martinez said to WFTV.
