A student at a Buffalo high school has filed a federal lawsuit, with the help of the New York Civil Liberties Union, for the right to form a Gay-Straight Alliance. The openly gay 18 year-old Byshop Elliott could no long sit idly by, ignoring the reportedly homophobic atmosphere in the school, and said he is suing because, “I just want them to wake up,” he told The Buffalo News. The lawsuit alleges that McKinley Principal Crystal Boling-Barton has warned students during announcements that they aren’t allowed to bring same-sex dates to the prom, keeps couples tickets reserved for opposite gender pairs, and separates same-sex partners when dancing together.
