LA Blade - Students in the suburban San Diego metropolitan area city of Chula Vista voted overwhelmingly for 18-year old transgender Karl Cristian Cruz, a student at Sweetwater Union High School, to be their 2018 homecoming queen. Her coronation was on Friday, Sept. 14.
Cruz told KGTV ABC 10 she was shocked but happy to know her classmates are accepting of who she is. “Everyone started cheering for me. I didn’t really expect that from anyone,” Cruz said. “After the fireworks, I just started crying my eyes out.”
