A male cheerleader at Alice High School (Tx) says he was kicked off the team after a school camera caught him kissing another boy on campus. The cheerleader says public displays of affection are a common occurrence around the school, and he feels he would not have been targeted if he were kissing a girl. The way he was caught makes him believe he was being targeted by the school.
“They never check cameras for anything unless something is stolen,” the young man told KRIS-TV. “We would be the ones getting caught because I’m sure we were the only ones, sexual orientation wise, being caught like that.”
The boy’s parents say they plan to take further action if their son is not put back on the team.
