A school district in Chula Vista, California has named its first ever transgender homecoming queen, reports NewNowNext.

Sweetwater Union High School students voted for Karl Cruz, 18, to wear the crown, and then roared with applause when her name was called during the homecoming game earlier this month. She said the honor and warm reception came as a surprise.

“I was completely shocked,” she told ABC 10. “Everyone started cheering for me, I didn’t really expect that from anyone.”
