So this 17 year old girl, a lesbian, was told by her school that she couldn't wear a tuxedo to her prom, and that if she wanted to attend, she'd have to wear a dress.
She told them she's a lesbian and that she
does not wear dresses because she thinks they express a sexual identity that she does not embrace
Her ACLU lawyer says
"From a First Amendment standpoint, wearing a tuxedo makes an affirmative statement about her own sexuality," Falk said. "Students have free-speech rights."
The school says
her only option for the prom was to wear a dress and that only boys could wear tuxedos
The prom at her school is April 25.
