Landslide hands homecoming king crown to trans student!

concordmonitorTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Nominated by a high school club and elected by the entire student body, trans student Ray Ramsey took the throne during homecoming at Concord High School in Concord, New Hampshire last week.

Although Ray came out as trans last year, he was aware of his status since he was in kindergarten. In the eighth grade Ray told his friends and family he was ‘into girls’ and evolved from there. His school, family and friends have been behind him all the while.

Anna Robert, Ray’s friend, told the Concord Monitor: “He doesn’t fear any of the repercussions of being completely who he is, and that’s one of the most inspirational things about him.”

Principal Gene Connolly:  “Kids here have a heart and they know what’s right, and they love Ray and they support Ray. It’s one of the things that really makes this school special.”

Ray’s another trans role model and inspiration for trans kids.

  1. Congrats, Ray. All the best for you in the future.

  2. Isn’t it amazing the difference in the response? Cassidy Lynn Campbell was immediately demonized, vilified and drew nasty comments from national haters like the AFA. This has not produced the same shitstorm. Once again it shows the lw esteem the public has for women.

  3. Larissa..just give it time. FtM’s are still so far off the radar it’s scary.
