According to 365gay.com, Anti-gay shirts cannot be prohibited in schools that allow support for gay rights. This was ruled by a federal apeals court last Tuesday. “In 2006, students wore “Be Happy, Not Gay” T-shirts after the Neuqua Valley High School in Illinois held its “Day of Silence” promoting gay tolerance.” The court says if homosexual students are allowed to promote gay rights, heterosexual students are allowed to practice supporting anti-gay rights. “Nate Kellum, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund who represented the anti-gay students, told the Chicago Sun-Times “In an environment that freely allows speech that promotes homosexual behavior, the school simply cannot shut out the opposing viewpoint.”
