Warren Evans, an openly bisexual high school student, says he’s being unfairly targeted by his school in south Maryland. He wore a skirt, wig and high heels to school – and was promptly suspended for “violating” the Calvert High School dress code.
Evans insists that there’s nothing in the code of conduct or dress code that forbids boys from wearing girl’s clothing. And other students told local news reporters that girls wearing skirts of a similar cut and length haven’t faced disciplinary action.
School officials are refusing to comment on the suspension. Attitudes in the community appear to be mixed, with some parents in favor of the ban, saying Evans’ choice in clothing was distracting. Others, including Evans parents, think students should be allowed to wear the clothing they like, even if it’s normally worn by the opposite sex.
A local news crew interviewed Evans on Friday, and you can get a look at the outfit causing the outcry below:
