Ms Ashey is not a "queen." She's a woman who was trans. "Queen" implies performance, as in "drag queen" rather than a female gender identity which is obviously what Ms Ashley has exhibited since she transitioned so many years ago.

I applaud Ms Ashley's achievement and am grateful to Queen Elizabeth for honoring her.
