HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A civil rights organization says a school district in Houston will allow a photo of a transgender student in a tuxedo to appear in the teen’s school yearbook.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says that after a Friday meeting, the La Feria school district decided to include the photo of Jeydon Loredo, who grew up female but now identifies as a male.

Loredo had said the district was not allowing his photograph, saying it violated “community standards.”

The law center had threatened to file a lawsuit if a decision allowing the photograph wasn’t made by Nov. 21.

Superintendent Raymundo Villarreal says the resolution is in the best interest of the student and the district.
