A Red Lion Area High School transgender student was allowed to bring his girlfriend to prom on Saturday, but the American Civil Liberties Union is still waiting for the school district apologize to the student following the prom king controversy. The ACLU said on Friday that Issak Wolfe, a senior Red Lion student whose birth name is Sierra Stambaugh, should be issued an apology by the district after high school principal Mark Shue decided to place Wolfe on the prom court ballot two weeks ago under prom queen and under his birth name. That listing was despite Wolfe's identifying himself as a transgender male for several years and asking to run as a prom king candidate.
