Lexington Catholic High School would not allow a lesbian couple to attend senior prom this weekend, so they held their own party outside the school’s doors.
“What I experienced in the Dean’s Office was blatant homophobia,” Hope Decker told local NBC affiliate Lex18. “We were told that this school has Catholic principles and so they couldn’t let it happen.”
“At first I was really upset,” said Decker’s date Tiffany Wright “I mean, we both cried and then I was like, this is ridiculous. There’s gotta be something we could do about this.”
Kudos to them for throwing an anti-prom right outside the school, and shame on the school for being so homophobic. But what did they expect? It is a Catholic school, after all.
