From Campus Reform:

The University of Minnesota has decided to drop the usage of the homecoming “King and Queen” titles in an effort to seek “gender inclusivity.”

According to the Student Unions and Activities announcement, the “King and Queen” titles will be replaced with “Royalty” as part of “an effort toward gender inclusivity.’

“We wish to promote a spirit of inclusion at the University of Minnesota,” the announcement reads. “This change allows the University to select the best student representatives for the U of M based on campus and community involvement—regardless of gender. What in the past would have been called ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ will now be called ‘Royals’ and can be any combination of any gender identity.”
