Transgender Teen Wants to Be Prom King

A transgender teenager in central Pennsylvania running for prom king is upset because he was listed instead for prom queen.

The York Dispatch and York Daily Record both report that students at Red Lion Senior High School who bought tickets for Saturday's prom were listed on the ballot for prom court.

The paper said 18-year-old Issak Wolfe was campaigning for prom king when friends discovered he was listed by his birth name — Sierra Stambaugh — among the candidates for prom queen.

Wolfe says he's in therapy and plans to undergo a physical transition.
 
While the prom listing drew an outcry, he acknowledges he's enrolled in school under his birth name and says school officials are good people who made a bad decision.
 
School officials are declining to comment.
