My hometown high school, Calabasas High School, crowns Lesbian couple as homecoming queens

Over the weekend my hometown high school of Calabasas in the LA area just crowned a lesbian couple  homecoming queen and queen over the weekend at Calabasas High School. Interviewed by the LA Times some quotes from the queens just make you smile. 

“I was really surprised, actually, but I thought it was really amazing," said Lily Cohen, who along with her partner, Greta Melendez, was nominated by her classmates for titles that historically have been awarded to a male and a female student as king and queen.
But for the first time at Calabasas High, that changed Saturday.
“We think the reason that we were picked to win is because, usually the homecoming king and queen are the most popular in their group of friends — whereas we are friends with all the little groups of people,” she said. “And they’ve never had a voice. They’ve never had someone to vote for.”
This story just makes me so proud to be from a tolerant and open city of Calabasas!
