Lawyers in Gary recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a transgender Gary high school student who was denied entrance to his senior prom for wearing a pink ankle-length gown. The lawsuit claimed that the school violated the student’s right to free expression and right to be free from discrimination on the basis of “gender identity” under the U.S. Constitution, as the school receives federal funding. Attorneys for the school district argue that the federal courts lack jurisdiction over the matter, as they cannot dictate local school dress codes. The case is ongoing.
