Female High School Senior Told She Couldn't Wear Tux To Prom

Such an inspiration! Another school this year tried to deny a teenage girl from wearing a tuxedo to her high school prom.

The incident took place at a Chicago area school when senior Belinda Sanchez was told she wouldn’t be able to wear a tux.

Her school requires all students to submit a photo of their intended prom dress before for approval. When she met with her principal last month, she stated she chose the tux because it represented her.

Unfortunately the principal stated he didn’t want a "sideshow" at what he described as "his" prom and suggested she wear something "more revealing" than a tuxedo.

WTF!

Belinda states, "I was shocked. I didn't know what to say. I felt like crying out of anger. I didn't expect it from him."

So Belinda took the matter to the law and her attorneys sent a letter to the school district informing them the refusal violated her constitutional rights.

Thankfully the school changed their minds quickly and yesterday informed all of those involved that Miz Sanchez would have the opportunity to wear a tux.

Success!!!
