Male-Identified Teen Is Barred From Wearing Stilettos (VIDEO)
Tyreese May, a male-identified student at Niagra Falls High School in New York was threatened with suspension after wearing a pair of stilettos to school. He twirled in the parking lot of his school today before a group of 20 protesters, some of whom brandished homemade posters that read: “Heels For One And All.”
According to Niagra Falls administration, May’s choice of footwear was “distracting,” despite the fact that several female-identified classmates were wearing a similar pair of heels. One such administrator claimed the issue was not about gender, but was instead safety-related, “in case of fire” he remarked.
