Georgia High School Student Derrick Martin Won The Right To Take A Gay Date To The Prom And Then His Parents Kicked Him Out

After asking Bleckley County, Georgia school officials permission in January to take another boy to the prom, Derrick Martin got word last week that his high school will allow it. Yea for Derrick right?

Well while Derrick has received tons of support from the internet and from gay rights groups, things have not turned out all that great because of the media attention, Martin’s parents have kicked him out and the teen is staying with a friend.

Clearly what Martin’s parents did  that was the Christian thing to do.  Stupid, ignorant, bigoted assholes.

Hang in there little brother!  We;re all going to try our best to help you out.
