David Emerson graduated from Delaware Christian School in 2002, and has moved on to working as a successful radio DJ in the Columbus area.
Just a few months ago, David noticed that he had been deleted from the alumni page of his high school alma mater -- apparently at the direction of the principal, who had noticed on David's Facebook page that he identifies as gay.
While California is passing laws to require that textbooks include LGBT Americans, this school is hoping to erase us. David's a stand-up guy, making a living in radio at a time when that is increasingly difficult. He's a popular local personality and, until the principal stalked him via Facebook, he was featured as an alumnus of the school. Educators should be nurturing their students and their alumni, not harassing them online and removing them from the school's history!
When you add your name, an email will go to the school's main inbox -- making clear how many people are standing up in support of David and all other LGBT alumni of DCS. Sign our petition demanding that David be added back into the school's history!
