"Lambda Legal released a press release of a new lawsuit, filed in the Northern District Court of Indiana regarding West Side High School (Gary, Indiana) violated Kevin "K.K." Logan's First Amendment rights when it barred him from his prom for wearing a dress.

"...The message here is that being a male-bodied person in a dress ? a Jane-Girl ? is as bad as using drugs. That's right ? according to school policy, one can't wear clothing that 'advertises' drugs or sexual orientation. And let's be clear, that means a female-bodied person wearing a tux isn't advertising sexual orientation, but a male-bodied person wearing a prom dress is advertising sexual orientation."
