High School Football Players Walk Out Of Musical After Gay Kiss

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFootball

Ugh! This is so lame.

A bunch of homophobic Connecticut high school football players walked out of a Hartford Public High School performance of the musical Zanna Don't after two male actors shared a "brief kiss" on stage.

The kiss must have been their breaking point considering the musical offers a bit of a heterosexual and homosexual role reversal.

Zanna Don't depicts life at a fictitious high school where academically minded LGBT students run the hallways, while heterosexuals and jocks are instead picked on for being different.

Adam Johnson, principal of the school's Government and Law Academy, described the incident by saying:

La Loca Not In Compliance!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

We don't doubt it!

Lindsay Lohan is supposed to be attending weekly alcohol education classes and sources say that school officials think she has "a bad attitude" and "entitlement issues."

Ya think?!

While her lawyer keeps saying Lindsay has made up the classes she missed, apparently that isn't entirely true!

Besides, the judge's official ruling was that "Defendant must attend program at least once a week without fail…defendant must be in full compliance to not be in violation."

Well she's not in full compliance and it's likely that Judge Marsha Revel will require Lindsay to appear in person during her May 20 hearing. It's also likely that the report from school officials about her bad attitude will factor in to the judge's decision.

That doesn't sound good for LiLo!

Constance McMillen Brings Her School District To Court To Fight For Her Rights!!

ap100311144412jb.jpg

It has begun!

As we've reported, Constance McMillen is the Mississippi teenager who has been fighting for her right to bring her girlfriend as a date to her high school's prom. She has made national headlines for her bravery and grace during a very public ordeal, and is now testifying in a US district court case against her school district!!

Of course, NOW the school officials are claiming they thought about canceling the prom even BEFORE Constance came forward with her request!

In the proceedings yesterday, Superintendent Teresa McNeece testified that they were concerned about the use of drugs or alcohol at a school-sponsored prom, so they were hesitant to hold the event from the getgo.

YEAH RIGHT! Like possible drug and alcohol use has ever stopped most high schools from throwing proms before??

She also attempts to blame McMillen for causing massive disruptions with her request.

"We were being hounded every day. Our students were being hounded. We were having a tough time of any bell-to-bell instruction."

Of course, during her cross-examination, apparently McNeece could not give any specific as to what those disruptions were. We're guessing because there WERE NONE.

The American Civil Liberties Union, who represent Constance and are behind the lawsuit, claimed in court that the school district has violated the teen's First Amendment right and claim that the outpour of resentment and anger was only AFTER the school cancelled prom, not while Constance made her request.

McMillen claims that the day prom was cancelled she had to leave school because the backlash from her peers was so intense:

"There were so many dirty looks. A lot of people didn't like me very much."

Poor thing!

US District Judge Glen H. Davidson has not specified when he will make his final ruling on the matter.

In the meantime, parents have reportedly been organizing a prom for the students, but Constance claims she has not been told about it!

Nice! What a great example to set for your kids, folks!

Luckily, the ACLU is organizing its own prom on May 8th that is open for everyone but specifically geared toward other gay students!

Good! Everyone deserves a High School prom!

Your courage has truly touched us, Constance!! Keep that head held high, you're in our thoughts!!
