Out100: Cassidy Lynn Campbell

Campbell, 16, documented her gender transition on YouTube, then entered the race for homecoming queen at her high school in Orange County, Calif., to make a point. And she won. Despite some vicious responses after the story hit the national media this year, Campbell told the Los Angeles Times, “I realized it’s bigger than me. I’m doing this for the kids who can’t be themselves.”
