Chase Culpepper, a transgender girl, is now getting an apology from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles after she was forced to remove her makeup when trying to take a photo for her first driver’s license in March of last year.

DMV employees told Culpepper, 17, she needed to “look male” in her license photo and refused to provide her with her license until she removed the makeup she was wearing, states ABC News.

A federal lawsuit was filed against the South Carolina DMV on Chase’s behalf by The Transgender Legal Defense Fund.
