Cross-Dressing Teen Fought the School, Won – By Jaya Saxena

A cross-dressing teen from Cape May, NJ was told by his principal that wearing a dress to his prom would “violate the school’s dress code.” Derrek Lutz had previously told WCBS, “What makes me a woman is inside and it doesn’t really matter what’s on the outside. And everyone should really just be treated equally,” and planned to be at prom no matter what. And after being backed by over 600 signatures on a petition started by his friends, Lutz was able to attend in a dress with a female date, and was even crowned Prom King!
