A transgender high school student says administrators at his Texas school told him that he could not appear in his senior yearbook wearing a tuxedo.

The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Human Rights Campaign are coming to the aid of Jeydon Loredo by sending a letter to La Feria High School administrators and school district officials. The photography studio that took Loredo's senior picture was told to withhold it once school administrators learned that he took it in a tuxedo, Loredo says. After the family lodged a complaint with the district, the superintendent reportedly said the photo would offend the town's "community standards."
