Male Cheerleader Suspended, Kicked Off Cheerleading Squad For Same-Sex Kiss

Alice High School in South Texas has suspended a gay male student for sharing a kiss with another male in the band hall. The 17-year-old senior was also kicked off the cheerleading team, even though reports “the young man spent countless hours practicing every day for years to make the varsity cheer squad.” The kiss was captured on a school surveillance camera, leading the student to think he had been monitored due to his sexual orientation. “They never check cameras for anything unless something is stolen,” he said.
