Transgender Teen Runs For Homecoming Queen
Students at North Dallas High School have been conducting their vote for homecoming royalty, but this year the choices may not be clear-cut. A transgender senior named Andy wants to be homecoming queen, but the principal says no, because Andy is, biologically, a male. While Andy represents herself as a girl, North Dallas principal Dinnah Escanilla has said she does not want a male reigning as homecoming queen.
The school district supports the principal saying these things are handled at the campus level and the district does not have an overarching policy on these questions. The results of the homecoming election are due to be released on Monday.
