Transgender Texas student's tuxedo photo banned
HOUSTON (AP) — A transgender student says his school district is preventing a photo of him in a tuxedo from appearing in his high school's yearbook.
Jeydon Loredo, who grew up female but now identifies as a male, says his Texas school district is not allowing his photograph because it violates "community standards."
Jeydon's mother, Stella Loredo, says she was told a photograph would be included only if her 18-year-old son wore feminine attire.
The Southern Poverty Law Center says it intends to file a lawsuit if a decision allowing the tuxedo photograph to be included isn't made by Nov. 21.
In a statement, Superintendent Raymundo Villarreal says the district hopes to resolve the issue.
