Students at Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, Ca have named Rebecca Arellano as the school’s first female homecoming king. The announcement was made Friday at a pep rally. Rebecca, who is a lesbian said that “They were chanting my name and it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had”.

Rebeca Arellano, a senior at Patrick Henry High School, was made the school’s first female homecoming king when her name was announced Friday at a pep rally.
“They were chanting my name and it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had,” said Arellano, a senior at Patrick Henry High School.
Arellano’s girlfriend, Haileigh Adams, who also attends Patrick Henry High School, was nominated for homecoming queen. The winner will be announced at tonight’s dance.
The couple has received both positive and negative feedback and Rebecca took to Facebook to address some of the things that people have been saying. “For all the girls who think tradition should be continued, go back to the kitchen, stop having sex before you’re married, get out of school and job system, don’t have an opinion, don’t own any property, give up the right to marry who you love, don’t vote, and allow your husband to do whatever he pleases to you. Think about the meaning of tradition when you use it in your argument against us.”
