Transgender Texas Teen Jeydon Loredo Prevails; Will Wear Tux in Yearbook
Two days after receiving a demand letter from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) threatening litigation, the La Feria Independent School District in Texas has agreed to allow a transgender senior, Jeydon Loredo, to appear in his high school’s yearbook wearing a tuxedo.
The district’s superintendent had previously told Jeydon’s mother, Stella Loredo, that her son’s tuxedo photograph would offend “community standards”; the superintendent explained to Ms. Loredo that the school would include her son’s photograph in the yearbook only if he wore stereotypically feminine attire, like a blouse.
