    A Pennsylvania high school student says she was barred from attending her prom because she was wearing a suit rather than a dress.

    Aniya Wolf told a local news station she's a lesbian who has worn a shirt and pants for all three years she has attended Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg.

    Aniya and her mother say the family got a last-minute email saying girls had to wear dresses to attend the prom.

    Mom Carolyn Wolf says she didn't think the dress code barred her daughter from wearing a suit and the last-minute message was unfair because they had bought a new suit.

    Aniya says she decided to go to Friday's prom anyway but was thrown out.

    Bishop McDevitt's principal hasn't returned a message left Saturday seeking comment.
