Wisconsin high school crowns transgender prom queen

MEQUON, Wis. (CNN) - It was a dream for a girl who's struggled for acceptance ever since she was a little boy.

On Saturday, Homestead High School in Mequon, Wisconsin, crowned Nikko Nelson, a transgender woman, prom queen without controversy or criticism. Nikko was born as a boy, but didn’t realize she identified as a female until junior high school.
