A Philadelphia teen removed from her high school prom for wearing a suit has been offered a guest role on a US television series after her story made international news.
Aniya Wolf, who identifies as a lesbian, decided to attend her prom in a suit her mother had purchased for her, despite a last minute change to the school's dress code demanding that all girls wear dresses to the event. During the prom a school official took Wolf by the arm and threatened to call the police.
Describing herself as "more masculine", Wolf told ABC 27 News: “I’ve always been like this, ever since I was little.”
She said that while her schoolmates have been supportive of her, the school made her feel like "a mistake".
Rob McElhenney, creator and star of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, heard about Wolf's story and offered her a guest spot on the show:
At first, Wolf couldn't believe it.
But McElhenney assured her that the offer was no joke.
And the rest is history:
The response online has been positive, and Wolf tweeted this photo to show her appreciation.
