Chris Quintanilla, a 14 year old Peoria, Arizona student, was recently forced to turn his rainbow wristband inside out by the principal. Chris reports that he has experienced numerous anti-gay moments at the school.
In 2002, students at Boyd County High School requested to be allowed to form a Gay Straight Alliance (“GSA”). Unfortunately, due to religious bias and prejudice against homosexuals, they were met with adversity. Although the GSA was approved, within two months of its formation the school banned the GSA and purportedly banned all other student organizations for that term.
