Blake Brockington, Transgender North Carolina Teen, Crowned Homecoming King

A North Carolina teen made local history after being crowned his state and school's first transgender homecoming king last week.
As WCNC is reporting, 17-year-old Blake Brockington was honored during a halftime ceremony at East Meck High School on Feb. 7.
A senior at East Meck High, Brockington said he felt "amazing" after the victory, telling WBTV, "I hope this makes everybody know that they can be themselves regardless of what anybody else says. Even though you go through some things and you have some negative encounters in your life -- anything's possible."
He then added, "You can do anything you set your heart to."
