Usually we get a little annoyed with gay male prom queens, but we totally love the lesbian couple crowned as the homecoming monarchs of Patrick Henry High School—mostly because the king has quite the mouth on her.
This past weekend Rebeca Arellano and her girlfriend, Haileigh Adams, were crowned as the homecoming king and queen at Patrick Henry High. And although Arellano says her parents, peers and teachers have been mostly supportive, she had this to say to all those who think a woman should never rule as a high-school prom king:
“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 [the] 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.”
She also said that it’s only fair she and Adams have a chance to win since everyone has heard about the football captain-cheerleader couple getting crowned as king and queen.
Usually proms suck for LGBT kids because schools freak out over gay student couples. But with each gay couple crowned as king and queen, the traditional dance becomes a bit more welcoming in a modern way.
Tiaras, gurls. Tiaras.
