Students Party On School’s Lawn After Lesbian Banned From Prom
Last year was very much the prom season of same-sex couple named prom king and queen, in which we saw dozens of schools buck generations of discrimination by electing their LGBT peers to prom royalty.
This year is shaping up to take a turn in a decidedly different direction.
Hope Decker, 18, told LEX 18 administrators sat her down Friday and told her she could not attend with her girlfriend, Tiffany Wright, who is also a student at the school.
“What I experienced in the Dean’s Office was blatant homophobia,” said Hope Decker, a senior at the school. “We were told that this school has catholic principles and so they couldn’t let it happen.”
But when Hope and her date weren’t allowed entry into the school for prom, the ladies and all of their pals decided to skip the homophobic formal and just rock out in their fancy threads on the schools front lawn instead.
And that’s what friends are for!
Shame on Lexington Catholic for openly discriminating against both a child in their care and a paying customer. Hope’s parents shelled out close to $10,000 per year in tuition, and they couldn’t afford to let her sully the hallowed prom dance floor with her deviant lesbian heels? 10,000 clams buys a whole lot of purifying frankincense and myrrh!
