School bans lesbian prom queens: ‘Not fair to the boy gender’
A lesbian couple is accusing the California school of discrimination because the school insists a boy must be included.
In a video posted over the weekend, 16-year-old Foothill High School senior Hayley Lack explained that “a lot of people voted for us and then it got halted at admin because admin decided it has to be traditional and be with a boy and a girl.”
“We want to change this because it’s obvious discrimination against us both for being in a lesbian relationship,” she added.
Even though Lack and her girlfriend received the most nominations, Principal Jim Bartow told Mic that the school would not be changing it’s traditional prom rules.
“They [the girls] are both able to run separately, but we don’t nominate as couples,” Bartow said. “It’s not fair to the boy gender.”
