"I've only had people congratulating me. I know that one of my friends was in a conversation with someone who didn't think that it was fair that I was able to run, because I'm not female-bodied. But it generated a really good conversation, so they were able to talk about a lot of different things."

--Jessee Valsold, on zir election as homecoming queen at the College of William and Mary, the first transgender person to hold the position
