WATCH: “Pray Away The Gay” Preacher Inspires “Born This Way” Response Video

 

Queerty readers were none to pleased with Pastor Bobby Blakey, who got impressionable gay teens Tyler and Patrick to testify in his rinky-dink video that they’d left their sinful path to walk with Jesus.

Turns out he also pissed off the students at the Orange County High School of the Arts, where Tyler attends.  The school responded to Blakey’s video with a Gay Pride Day, where students were invited to wear rainbow colors and celebrate diversity. Check out this performance of Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way,” performed at OCHSA on Pride day.

“We believe in acceptance,” says one student. “We believe in love.”

After OCHSA’s video and countless negative comments on his YouTube page, Blakey has removed his clip. We’re kinda thrilled about that, but if you really want to see the original testimonial, an intrepid reader has uploaded it here.
