Churchie School Should Allow Same-Sex Prom Dates

According to Queerty:

"The all boys school Churchie, located in Australia’s Queensland state, rejected several gay kids requests to bring their same-sex beaus to the end-of-the-year dance. While headmaster Jonathan Hensman says he appreciates their asking, he simply cannot deviate from the dance’s historic trajectory.

"We don’t intend to change our practice. As well as being a social occasion, it’s an education forum and to that end the school decides what is appropriate behavior and what is not.

Not all students take their girlfriends. Some take a female friend. It’s about protocols and decorums."

Please contact the school headmaster and tell him that discriminating against gay students is wrong...

You can also email the 2 sponsors of the event, Goodtime Surf and Sail and Austral Motors, on the emails below.

I did this a couple of days ago and a woman at goodtime actually responded to me (vaguely and halfheartedly). I believe that she could be swayed to revoke sponsorship given enough emails!
