Girl Who Was Banned From Prom For Wearing Tux Finds A Better Party, And Kills It

"I think my daughter is beautiful in a suit,” said Aniya's mom.

All hail our new generation of brave gender warriors; the kids are going to be alright. Bravely fighting for her right to wear whatever the f*ck she wants regardless of her sex, teen activist Aniya Wolf has found a prom that will let her rock a tux despite being banned from her own school's celebrations.

Earlier this month, Aniya found herself forcibly removed from Bishop McDevitt High's prom party when she showed up looking like an angel of dapperness in men's formal wear following the school's hasty change in dresscode that mandated that all girls must wear dresses. 

Wolf’s mom attempted to rectify the situation to no avail. “I told them that I had read the dress code that was given to the students and I didn’t think that it precluded her from wearing a suit.  I said that this was very unfair, particularly at the last minute.  We had gone out and bought a new suit. I think my daughter is beautiful in a suit,” Carolyn Wolf said.

“I’ve always been like this, ever since I was little.” Aniya told ABC 27. She's always thought of herself as “more masculine. You wouldn’t catch me playing with any Barbie dolls, I’ll tell you that right now.”


After her act of fashionable defiance, Aniya was invited to appear on It's Always Sunny In Philidelphia to show off her sartorial sensibilities:


And just this weekend, the AP reported that Aniya found herself invited to a neighboring town's prom.  William Penn High's principal, Brandon Carter, reached out to Aniya and countered her hometown's hate by saying, “We do embrace all.” BTW, girl looked good:


Well, at least one person in the world will look back on their prom photos and not feel like they looked like a total fool. Congrats Aniya! We'll be tweeting at you for fashion tips later.
