Mount de Sales Academy, a private Catholic school in Macon, Georgia has just fired Flint Dollar, its band leader, because he announced he plans to marry his partner of 6 years at a ceremony in Minnesota. According to Dollar, the school knew he was gay when he was hired but stated it was fine as long as it “didn’t interfere with his teaching.” 
Parents and students are currently rallying around Dollar and have launched a Facebook page, a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #savedollar, and a petition at Change.org urging the academy’s president, David Held, to reconsider the termination. https://www.change.org/petitions/david-held-reconsider-the-termination-of-mr-flint-dollar

If there was a national piece of legislation against LGBT discrimination, situations like this would not happen.

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

The first national coverage of OutCasting, in the Huffington Post.
A very big deal.

The use of the word “tranny” is being hotly debated right now. Simply removing the word from one’s daily conversation might be part of the solution. Dan Savage talked about his history with the word, and it is absolutely worth listening to.
