A 14-year-old boy was banned from performing his drag act at his school’s end-of-year talent show.
Lewis Bailey, who performs as Athena Heart, was told by Castle High School and Visual Arts College in Dudley that his performance was not permitted, a day before it was to go ahead.
He said he was upset by the decision, and chose to go to school in drag on Friday’s non-uniform day.
The school said it celebrated diversity but felt the act was not “appropriate”.
Drag World has now invited the teenager to perform.
