A gay high school student in Alice, Texas, says he was kicked off the cheerleading squad and suspended after kissing another male student.
The cheerleader, who wishes to remain anonymous, was caught on a surveillance camera, reports 6 News, which leads him and his family to believe that he was being monitored and targeted because he's gay.
"They never check cameras for anything unless something is stolen," he said. "We would be the ones getting caught because I'm sure we were the only ones, sexual orientation wise, being caught like that."
The cheerleader also stated that public affection is not uncommon among the students at Alice High School, which he claims is further proof of the discrimination he's facing.
"In this school [kissing] is everywhere, if that were the case, suspending everyone for that, half the school would be suspended," he said.
The student's parents told 6 News that when they met with a school administrator they learned that the school is reviewing the principal's decision to suspended their son and they could expect news next week. The family added that they are prepared to start a fight if their son isn't reinstated on the squad.
