BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – An Alabama high school student who was disciplined after asking her girlfriend to attend the prom says they are told that they can go as a couple.
Janizia Ross told The Associated Press on Thursday that she and the other student is on the height they can go to the prom in Alexandria high School.
The 17-year-old Ross finished with an in-school suspension earlier this month that was the punishment for coming on stage during a school talent show and asking a female student to go to prom.
The officials of the School in the east Alabama system to refuse the punishment violated what they describe as a pursuit of equality.
Lambda Legal, which advocates for same-sex rights, had complained about the punishment. The organization says it is happy the girls are allowed to attend prom.
