Wolcott High School

The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut says Wolcott school officials have reversed themselves and are allowing a student to wear a T-shirt with an anti-gay message.

The ACLU announced Tuesday that the lawyer for the school district says high school student Seth Groody may wear the T-shirt, which bears a slash mark through a rainbow.

The ACLU says he wore the shirt last April 20, which was designated as a day of awareness of harassment toward gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people. He removed the shirt when ordered by school officials.

The ACLU says it was prepared to sue the school district.

Without elaborating, school attorney Christine Chinni wrote to the ACLU saying that Groody may wear the T-shirt.

Chinni did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
