PA Board Nixes Transgender Homecoming King Entry



A Cambria County school board won't let a student who was born female but identifies as male run for homecoming king.
 
The Richland School Board didn't rule on Kasey Caron's request Monday night, but simply let stand an earlier decision by school administrators, which leaves the 17-year-old senior on the ballot for homecoming queen. The student's mother, Kathy Caron, said she was disappointed by the board's action.
 
Kasey's driver's license has been switched from female to male, but Leventry has previously said that Pennsylvania law requires a person born female to have a physician certify a sex-change operation and have the birth certificate changed to legally be considered male.
