A pro-family activist says a transgender teen's win for homecoming queen is a sad celebration of the teenager's gender confusion.

A transgender teen was named homecoming queen at Marina High School in Huntington Beach. Student Cassidy Lynn Campbell was born Lance Campbell but has been living as a female for three years.

“When you have boys being awarded and elected 'Homecoming Queen,' you are a society in big trouble,”  says Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.

LaBarbera, Peter“And I think that is where the United States is, and it really is the pandora's  box that is hard to put back in,” LaBarbera tells OneNewsNow.

Although Campbell said he did face criticism for running, the school's principal was very supportive.

The 16-year-old student says after winning the title, he plans to be more active in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender movement.

"The saddest thing of all is that people like this, even young men and girls, are championed and celebrated when they demonstrate this kind of gender confusion and sexual confusion,” says LaBarbera.

“It's a sad day in America when you see these kinds of cases celebrated,” he adds.
