A group of students at McGuffey High School in Claysville, Pennsylvania have coordinated their outfits to promote an Anti-Gay day. This is in direct response to the National Day of Silence, which seeks to raise awareness on the bullying and harassment of LGBT students.
The group of students all wore flannel shirts, wrote anti-gay on their hands, and even shared a picture of their hate-club in their outfits on Instagram. According to WPRXI, they are set to coordinate the color of their shirts through the week.
They are also responsible for posting flyers and stickers around the school, particularly on the lockers of gay students that read 'Anti-gay.'
"There was pushing, posters hung on homosexual students' lockers. It hurts me to see how rude and cruel, and some of these people were my friends before this started." Zoe Johnson, a bisexual student of McGuffey said.
Some teachers took action and tried their best to protect gay students by running around the place and taking down the posters. Meanwhile, Dr. Eric Kolat the Superintendent of McGuffey school district issued a statement:
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.
On Monday morning, a group of supporters gathered at McGuffey High School to show support for the LGBT students.
