Oak Reed is a guy. He wears the same uniform as the other guys in the school’s band. His teachers refer to him as “he.” He’s going to wear the “male robe and cap” (whatever those are) at graduation.

But his official records at Mona Shores High School in Muskegon, Michigan list him as female, and so — the school says — they couldn’t let him serve as homecoming king.

Never mind that the students of the senior class voted him in. Never mind that his peers, his teachers, his fellow band geeks think of him as a boy. Never mind that HE’S A GUY. The school overruled all that, and put someone else in the homecoming court in his place last Friday.

Jezebel has more details, and a bunch of links to places you can go to complain. They also link to the Oak Is My King group on Facebook, who write:

Oak Reed received the most votes for homecoming King. Period. Our school not only lied to students, but they also promoted transphobia. Our school has made it clear that they don’t want a transgendered student to represent Mona Shores. As students, we must stand up to assert the rights of Oak, and transgendered students everywhere.

After the craziness of Homecoming is over, students are encouraged to wear “Oak is my King” t-shirts on October 1st.

Oak is so my King, and I don’t care who knows it.
