TN Man Says He Was Attacked At High-School Reunion For Being Gay


At his 20th annual high-school reunion over the weekend, Shawn Farris of Franklin County, Tennessee, says he was assaulted because he’s gay.


But the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says they have no plans to investigate the incident—which they’ve classified as simple assault—as a hate crime.

Farris, who is a flight attendant, started the group the “Flight Attendant Project”  to help at-risk LGBT youth.
