16 year-old Cassidy Lynn Campbell was born, Lance Campbell, but has been living as a woman for the past 3 years. Recently, her highschool, Marina High School in Huntington Beach, California nominated her as their upcoming homecoming queen.
Cassidy, who has been bullied and called names in the past, has pushed through her highschool struggle, and is now becoming known for her Youtube channel where she offers all kinds of advice on new beauty products, and tips on transitioning like “How to Self-Inject Estrogen”, all the while documenting her very own journey.
Cassidy hopes that her homecoming nomination will help others with acceptance, and her message is simple:
“It’s okay to be transgender and it doesn’t matter what kind of girl you are — you can still be a queen.”
