Transgender teen voted homecoming queen in Huntington Beach

A transgender teen has been elected homecoming queen at a high school in Huntington Beach.

Friday was homecoming for the Marina High School Vikings. It was a big game for the football team, but the players weren't the only ones hoping to end the night victorious.

Cassidy Lynn Campbell was one of five students in the running for homecoming queen. She's the school's first transgender teen nominated to the court. Up until this year, she lived life as Lance Campbell.

A YouTube video of Campbell shows the transformation she makes daily in order to look how she feels inside. Fellow students have been supportive and many of them voted for Campbell to be this year's homecoming queen.
"I think it's really cool how we allowed her to run, and I just think it's a really good thing," said student Kelsey Callanan.

Campbell received the most votes to earn the crown -- a crown she didn't think was within reach, but now wears with her head held high.

"I wasn't doing this for me. I was doing this for so many others, so many others around the nation," said Campbell.



Another transgender student claims discrimination over bathroom, 

locker room use

It’s back-to-school time across America and you know what that means: a fresh supply of stories about transgender students demanding special treatment—particularly when it comes to bathrooms and locker rooms.
The latest spat involves an expelled transgender student at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown who has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that the school violated her civil rights by preventing her from using men’s locker rooms and restrooms, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The student, Seamus Johnston, was born female but identifies as a male. Johnston has undergone several months of hormone treatment recently.

The lawsuit was filed Monday. The suit claims that the school violated federal anti-discrimination laws. Johnston is representing herself.
A Pitt spokesman told the Tribune-Review that the school plans to defend the legal challenge “vigorously.”
The events leading up to the lawsuit are nothing if not interesting.
Johnston was expelled from Pitt-Johnstown for repeatedly using the men’s locker room despite the school’s order that she not do so, explains the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Johnston, 22, and her partner, Katherine Anne McCloskey, 56, filmed an attempted (and failed) series of citizen’s arrests at the Pitt-Johnstown campus. McCloskey did the arresting. Johnston filmed the events. (The antics can be seen at the end of a collection of clips from WPXI on YouTube.)

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
