According to a report from WXPI, students from a Pennsylvania high school this week allegedly organized an “anti-gay day” last week – just one day after a pro-LGBT “Day of Silence” took place on campus grounds.
The McGuffey High School students had “anti-gay” written on their hands and wore coordinated flannel shirts.
According to several students, things even got physical with LGBT students being harassed.
“Stickers and flyers are also being placed around the school and on queer kids’ lockers that read ‘ANTI-GAY,’” One student said. Another student told BuzzFeed News, “I got called a dyke, a f*ggot. They were calling us every horrible name you can think of.”
Upon hearing complaints, the district’s superintendent released a statement reading:
Yesterday afternoon, April 16, 2015, allegations of harassment were brought to the attention of our administration. McGuffey School District, along with school police officers, continue to investigate all allegations. We will follow our Student Code of Conduct, and file legal citations, as warranted. We resolve to ensure that all children can grow and learn in a safe, supportive environment free from discrimination.
