After winning the right to take his boyfriend to the prom, and then getting kicked out of his own house, Georgia high school senior Derrick Martin is facing his own classmates protesting his right to bring somebody to dance with. Or really, it’s not that his peers have a problem with him being gay, just that he’s made such a big fuss about it. This, from a demographic that Facebook gossip to be life-or-death.
Says lead obnoxious person Amber Duskin (pictured), who organized a rally outside the courthouse: “I don’t believe in going up there and dancing with gay guys like that. It’s also not just him bringing a boy. It was bringing all this attention to it.” In the meantime: She wants her prom ticket refunded.
