Trans pupil ‘had to show head Equality Act’ to wear female clothing for exam
A trans teenager has said she had to show her headmaster a copy of the Equality Act before he would allow her to sit an exam wearing female clothing.
16-year-old Ashlyn Parram’s parents have complained after she was told to return home and change her clothes.
Instead, she showed the headmaster of the Giles Academy in Boston, Lincolnshire a copy of the Equality Act provisions for non-discrimination on the grounds of gender identity.
She was then allowed to sit the exam but was segregated from other pupils.
