Transgender Student Not On Homecoming Court
North Dallas High School will not have a transgender homecoming queen this year. Transgender Andy Moreno wanted to run for homecoming queen, but Principal Dinnah Escanilla told her last week she could only run for king. Moreno was born a male, but now identifies as a female. She was not among nominees announced yesterday, and she says it wasn’t because she didn’t have enough votes. Moreno is now working with the activist group, Queer Liberaction, about possible legal representation and a public protest of the decision.
