Homophobes threatened to light gay kids on fire at Canada school

Students members of a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) in Botwood, Canada, say that homophobic classmates threatened to set them on fire. Pupils at Botwood Collegiate high school in Newfoundland spoke out about their horrifying clashes at the school with a faction of students opposed to LGBT+ rights. Botwood, the small rural town, has a population of just 3,000.  Canadian broadcaster CBC reports that rainbow posters for the school’s GSA have been repeatedly torn down, while others had black-and-white ‘Straight Pride’ taped over the top. Speaking to the outlet, GSA member member Ashley Hoskins said there was “pretty much a civil war in the school” between the GSA and the group of anti-LGBT students.
