Gay High School Student Suspended After Getting Frustrated With School Administration — Over Putting A Positive Gay Message In His Yearbook Quote!
One teen in St. Chatherines, Ontario had to fight his school administration to be allowed to write a positive gay message in his yearbook profile.
Blair Gaboury, a gay student at Dean Morris High School, wanted to write a simple message to his fellow students:
