(EDUCATION NEWS) – A Maryland high school is introducing a gender-neutral homecoming court this year to offer students the opportunity to decide for themselves whether they would prefer to be called a “king” or “queen,” regardless of their gender.

Students from each grade level at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School will vote for two classmates from a selection of finalists, with the two winners being crowned at the homecoming football game at the school. The change allows the two winners to be, for the first time, two boys, two girls, transgender students, or a boy and a girl.
