Authorities in Massachusetts have granted a ‘Pastafarian’ woman the right to wear a colander on her head for her driving licence photo.

Lindsay Miller is a ‘Pastafarian’ and believes it to be her religious right to have her head in a Spaghetti Strainer if she so chooses. After an appeal, the authorities in Massachusetts allowed the woman to appear with the symbol of her faith in her driving license photo. It is not generally permitted to allow for headgear in passport or driving license photos.

The Independent reports:

Lindsay Miller convinced officials to look past rules that normally stop people from smiling, wearing sunglasses or donning head gear in their official image, on the basis of her stated religion.

Belonging to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, she won her appeal against the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) for the right to wear her colander, saying she is a ‘Pastafarian’.

Initially, Ms Miller’s application was denied, but she won her appeal with the help of an attorney associated with the American Humanist Association.

She now is the proud owner of a Massachusetts driving license with a metal colander on her head.

Ms Miller, of Lowell, Massachusetts, said: “As a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I feel delighted that my Pastafarianism has been respected.Pastafarian woman
