High School Student Kicked Out Of Prom Invited To Another School's Event

Posted: Updated:

YORK, Pa. — A Pennsylvania high school student barred from attending prom at her Catholic high school because she wore a suit rather than a dress has been invited to another school's prom.

William Penn Senior High School Principal Brandon Carter says he invited Aniya Wolf to the May 21 event because "We do embrace all.'' Another teacher says Wolf accepted.

Wolf says she learned at the last moment that girls were required to wear dresses to Friday's prom at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg. She went anyway but was thrown out.

The school says the dress code was sent to parents three months earlier.

Wolf is a lesbian and says she has worn a shirt and pants for all three years she has attended the high school.
