Chesnee HS Reverses Position on Student’s ‘Lesbian’ Shirt

Chesnee High School has reversed their position on allowing a female student’s to wear a shirt that says “No one knows I’m a lesbian,” according to the Superintendent for District 2.

Briana Popour said she was pulled out of class into the front office and told her shirt was disruptive during the first week of September.

She said that’s news to her and there’s nothing against displaying sexual orientation in the dress code handbook.
