Here’s an update about the 4 graduating trans students who were allegedly not allowed to march on their graduation
MELA HABIJAN – The Miss Trans Global took to social media wherein she expressed her disappointment after four (4) graduating trans students with long hair are allegedly not allowed to march on their graduation.
Recently, Habijan went to the micro-blogging site, Twitter wherein she shared that four graduating senior high students are not going to attend their graduation rites after they were required to cut their hair.
According to Habijan, the students were told that a graduation is a formal event.
To cheer them up, Habijan gifted the students with a graduation photoshoot that would “remind them of their worth as trans people.”
The Miss Trans Global said that it seemed the students were robbed of an opportunity of a lifetime to march and receive their hard-earned diplomas.
Habijan noted that she tried to talk to the Department of Education (DepEd) regarding their situation.
Meanwhile, based on the latest update of the trans beauty queen, Kendi, Rey, and Nicole have been allowed to march on their graduation.
Apparently, no decision has been made for Jade.
Habijan is also calling for all the DepEd schools to be truly inclusive and acknowledge as well as celebrate the identity of those who belong to the LGBTQIA+ community.
Earlier, a student from Lorma Colleges was barred from marching during its graduation ceremony.
Unfortunately, Nursing graduate, John Marcelino Rosaldo was not allowed to march and receive his diploma due to unprocessed graduation fees.
The said school will conduct an investigation regarding the incident.
