English grad ‘one of the bravest people I know’
By Thor Jourgensen / The Daily Item
LYNN — English High School Principal Thomas Strangie sat on the school’s graduation stage June 5 listening as senior class president Victor Bene identified himself as transgender before 315 classmates.
“After his speech, he sat down next to me,” Strangie said, “and I said, ‘You are one of the bravest people I know.’”
Bene, 17, is one of the Class of 2015’s most popular students. Elected class president for every one of his four years at English, Bene also got picked to be prom king this year.
“I have a lot of supportive friends. I live my life in a very honest, open way. A big misconception is transgender people are hiding something. That is not so,” Bene said.
But Bene’s life, by his own admission and Strangie’s and his mother’s accounts, has changed during four years at English.
“When he arrived here, he was a she — he was Victoria,” Strangie said.
Bene’s mother, Nicole, said her son “definitely had questions about his sexuality” during his freshman year at English, but Bene said he has “identified as male all my life.”
