A transgender student at St. Pius High School has received international support in his battle to wear boy’s gown at his graduation. Damian Garcia want’s to war the black robe offered to boys instead of the white robe girls wear during the ceremony. School officials told him he has to wear white since his birth certificate shows he is a girl. People from all over the world have signed a petition to push the school school to allow him to wear a black gown.
