A Republican lawmaker in Missouri USA was dismayed to see students wearing Gay-Straight Alliance t-shirts at a school event.
Kevin Elmer’s tweet criticizing the t-shirts was sent on Spirit Day yesterday (17 October), when LGBT people and their allies around the world unite against bullying, particularly in schools.
But Elmer tweeted: ‘Nixa Schools failure. HS students working elementary school book fair in gay t-shirts.’
He shared a picture of one of the offending t-shirts, although only the student’s torso and the bottom of their hair can be seen.
