Jonathon Escobar attended North Cobb High School, which is located in Kennesaw Ga. Escobar’s attire includes wigs, makeup, skinny jeans, vintage tops and women’s flats. According to the school administration at North Cobb, his dress is inappropriate and causes a distraction to the learning environment at the school.

After being approached by a school official, he was told, “his choice was either to stop dressing in such a feminine manner or consider home-schooling.” Escobar then dropped out of North Cobb High School. “If I can’t express myself, I won’t go to school. I want to get the message out there that because this is who I am, I can’t get an education,” said Escobar.
