RED LION, Pa. -- A transgender teenager running for prom king at a central Pennsylvania school is upset because he's listed instead for prom queen.

The York Dispatch and the York Daily Record report Red Lion Senior High School students who bought tickets for Saturday's prom were listed on the ballot for prom court. The newspapers say 18-year-old Issak Wolfe was campaigning for prom king when friends discovered he was listed by his birth name, Sierra Stambaugh, among the candidates for prom queen.

Wolfe says he's in therapy and plans to undergo a physical transition. He acknowledges he's enrolled in school under his birth name and says school officials are good people who made a bad decision.

His bid to be listed for prom king has garnered lots of support online.

School officials have declined to comment.
