Anry Fuentes is 18 and a senior at Denair High School in California, where she is the first transgender person to be on the school's cheerleading team. Anry actually made the team in April when she was still identifying as a boy, using the name Henry. She eventually came out to cheerleading coach Robin Hilton, who has been very supportive, telling TODAY:

Our community has always accepted her from the very beginning. The squad has embraced her and they have been friends forever. Now that she finally feels happy and confident, she wants others to feel that way, too.
