A gay student was barred from running for prom queen at Lehman High School in Kyle, just south of Austin.
The administration said that allowing a male to run would discriminate against women if males won both prom king and queen.
Coy Villasenor is identified in a story from Fox affiliate KTBC in Austin as gay.
“I wear foundation, I fill in my eyebrows, I take care of myself how a female should and I mean the king’s title is more masculine and the queen is someone who rules with a gentle hand and that’s how I am,” Villasenor told Fox.
