Transgender teen in Huntington Beach nominated for homecoming queen | VIDEO

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- A transgender teen is making history at Marina High School in Huntington Beach after she was selected as one of the top 10 finalists for homecoming queen.

Cassidy Lynn Campbell was born Lance Campbell, but has been living as a woman for the last three years.

The 16-year-old said she has always felt trapped in the wrong body, even as a child.

According to Campbell, her shot at becoming homecoming queen isn’t just about a title but a hard-fought token of acceptance.
