High school cancels controversial ‘Gender-Bender’ homecoming spirit day


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WTVD) — Reid Ross Classical High School in Fayetteville has agreed to change a controversial spirit week theme after parents and advocates voiced concerns about the “Gender-Bender” day, encouraging students to “cross-dress” in traditional male or female attire.

Valentina Graham was one of the first parents to sound off.

Other parents weren’t concerned at all.
