San Francisco’s Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School removed an 18-year-old’s senior yearbook photo – because she wore a tuxedo..
The school says Urbina broke a rule that female students must wear dresses for their yearbook photos, and that an alternative picture will appear. But students are protesting on Urbina’s behalf, with many showing up to school on Friday wearing ties in solidarity. Her brother, 21-year-old Michael Urbina, also started the hashtag #JessicasTux to spread the message among students. source
Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep has already started to respond to the backlash, saying in a statement, “These events have sparked a campus-wide dialogue which will result in a revision of policy.”
