Students, teachers: No gay kids at prom
Some teens, parents and teachers at an Indiana school are fighting to ban gays for a ‘traditional’ prom.
A group of several students, parents, and at least one teacher at Sullivan High School in Sullivan, Indiana are lobbying for a "traditional prom" that would ban gay students from attending reports Huffington Post.
Administrators at Sullivan High School are not backing the movement, so the group is considering the possibility of a "separate but equal" prom.

“We want to make the public see that we love the homosexuals, but we don’t think it’s right nor should it be accepted,” student Bonnie McCammon told NBC 2.
Several local pastors also support the separate prom movement.
"Christians have always been prepared for a fight. Jesus gave us armor for the front, not the back; we're not running anymore," Bill Phegley with Carlisle Church told NBC 2.
Meanwhile, a Facebook page, Support The Sullivan High School Prom For All Students, is gaining momentum in defense of the school's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) student body. Currently, the page has over 2,300 likes.

Seattle-based LGBT activist Dan Savage also weighed in on the subject in his blog:
"There's no way to stop the haters at Sullivan High School from holding an independent prom for the special bigoted kids. But here's what we can do: We can make a noise so loud enough that all the queer kids at Sullivan High School hear it. Those kids need to know that there are people -- a lot of people -- who think this sh*t is wrong."
