A pro-family leader says the recent crowning of a California lesbian couple for homecoming "queen and queen" shows what can happen when a state mandates promotion of homosexuality in its schools.

A lesbian couple was crowned homecoming queen and queen Nov. 2 at Calabasas High School in Los Angeles County. Student Lily Cohen and her partner, Greta Melendez, said they were "shocked" to learn they were nominated by their classmates for titles that are typically awarded to a male and female student.

Dr. Scott Lively of Defend the Family International says almost two years have passed since California public schools were mandated to promote homosexuality.

"And I believe this is a proof of that policy," Lively tells OneNewsNow.

Lively adds: "Frankly I shudder when I think about what is going to be happening with the kids who are now in kindergarten, when they get into high school after many years of this kind of propaganda."

Melendez told KTLA that her school has changed a lot in the last four years. When she was a freshman, she would not have had the same reaction because she went through a lot of bullying, she said.

Melendez is the president of the school's Gay and Straight Alliance Club.

In a story about the California homecoming, Huffington Post - a left-wing news website - trumpeted similar school events during the current school year. Those included two "queens" elected in Texas; a transgender student being elected homecoming "King" at a New Hampshire high school; and a male elected homecoming queen at the University of Northern Iowa.
