Jonathan Escobar, Cross-Dressing Student, Kicked Out Of Georgia High School (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

16-year-old Jonathan Escobar has been kicked out of his Georgia high school for dressing too much like a girl. School officials claim that Escobar's manner of dress violates the school's dress code, which bars "disruptive" clothing, and that they told him he had to dress "more like a male" or he wouldn't be allowed to attend. Escobar disputes this, however, saying that when he first moved to Georgia from Miami, he cleared his style of dress with school authorities and they gave him the OK.

Several of Escobar's classmates are supporting his attempts to be allowed back in, with one saying: "If a girl can dress like a guy but a guy can't dress like a girl - that's not right."
