A transgender Red Lion student speaking out against his birth name being read at graduation. Isaak Wolfe, who was born a girl, is working on getting his name legally changed. But, the school refuses to read it that way at the ceremony. Wolfe , preparing a statement, and along with friends, family, and a petition of 2,000 signatures came to Thursday night’s school board meeting to speak about the issue.
“ Reading my male name at graduation wouldn’t hurt anyone. Reading my female name would hurt me immensely. Is it more important to push around a teenage then it is to make the school a safe place for students?,” says Isaak Wolfe
The board didn’t make a decision Thursday. The school district’s solicitor says had Wolfe already gotten his name legally changed, this wouldn’t be an issue.
