A Missouri high school is making history by crowning a male student as homecoming queen rather than homecoming king.
Rock Bridge High School senior, Zachary Willmore, who is a varsity cheerleader, shared the video of his win on TikTok, which went viral. As of today, the video was viewed more than three-and-a-half million times and got more than 750-thousand likes.
Willmore, who has more than a million followers, is deeply invested in making his high school a more equitable place for people of all genders. He is challenging his school’s dress code by using his TikTok account to decry the times he was “dress coded” for his “feminine” or avant-garde haute couture outfits.
