Leon High School In Tallahassee, FL Crowned A Lesbian Couple Prom King And Queen

Tallahassee high school students have crowned a lesbian couple prom king and queen.

Indeed, Lindsey Creel and Brie Grimes, who have been together for three years, were named prom king and queen and that's the first time a same-sex couple gets the titles in the history of the Leon High School.

We were talking the other day about the case of Hayley and her girlfriend in Palo Cedo, CA who were forbidden to be nominated, supposedly because it was unfair to the boys, and today is a good lesson of acceptance Leon High school and its administration offer us.

Lindsey and Brie have also not seen this victory as a personal victory but a victory for the LGBTQ community.

"I hope that people will look at this and more will begin to think that it's OK to be supportive of the LGBTQ community," Lindsey told the Tallahassee DemocratTallahassee Democrat. "Leon often talks about change… This is a good example for younger students there."

"It feels good to know some of the things we’ve been a part of can help others going through tough experiences, in a positive way," Brie said. "I needed someone in my life to show me that it would work out — when I was first going through this years ago. But I didn’t have that."
