A Pittsburgh-area high school has turned the Gay Straight Alliance’s “Day of Silence” into a week of threats, violence, and hate. Last Thursday, students at McGuffey High School organized “Anti-Gay Day” in which many wore flannel shirts and wrote “Anti-Gay” on their hands. According to reports, they also passed around a “lynch list” of those students who observed the “Day of Silence,” which is intended to raise awareness toward anti-gay bullying. “Yesterday, there was pushing, posters hung on homosexual students’ lockers. Teachers were having to run out and take them down,” Zoe Johnson, a student at McGuffey High School, told MPXI on Friday. “It hurts me to see how rude and cruel, and some of these people were my friends before this started,” she said.

The abuse was also rampant on social media, with students posting Bible versus and tagging gay students. And while the superintendent released a statement, so far nothing has been done, and students plan on a whole week’s worth of anti-gay events, including wearing orange shirts in solidarity.
