ANDERSON, S.C. — An Upstate teen wants to retake his driver’s license picture after he says the employees at the Anderson Department of Motor Vehicle made him take off his make-up for the picture, WYFF reports. Chase Culpepper, 16, wears make-up and girl’s clothing every day. He considers himself gender non-conforming.



Culpepper says on March 3 he went to the DMV office in Anderson with his mother to get his driver’s license. He said he had already passed the test and was told he could not have his picture taken while wearing make-up because he did not look the way a boy should.

Culpepper’s mother spoke to WYFF News 4’s Angela Rodriguez. "They said he was wearing a disguise," said Teresa Culpepper. "It was very hurtful. He was absolutely devastated. That’s who he is 24/7," said Culpepper.
