TEENS WAVING MAGA FLAGS DISRUPT HIGH SCHOOL'S FIRST GAY STRAIGHT ALLIANCE MEETING

BY DANIEL AVERY ON 9/5/19 AT 6:30 AM EDT

Students holding the first meeting of a Gay Straight Alliance at a school in California were interrupted by classmates who reportedly shouted slurs, carried a banner reading "Make America Great Again" and followed them into the parking lot.

The inaugural meeting took place at Frontier High School in Bakersfield on August 28. Afterward, according to a parent who posted on Facebook, a group of "straight kids" came in holding hands and shouting "This is what's right!"

The newcomers were members of Future Farmers of America (FFA), a 91-year-old youth organization that's typically nonpartisan. But, according to the parent, "lately [there's been] tension at the school between FFA and any kids they've determined as 'liberal,'" adding that "the gay community is apparently the one they've decided to mess with."

One FFA member, a senior named Matthew, told KERO Channel 23 that he and other members were suspended for "harassment, intimidation and sexual assault."

But Matthew insists they only attended out of "curiosity" and says a GSA member instigated the altercation. "If you have an opinion that people don't agree with, you get hated on," he claimed.
