finley powers started this petition to Sacred Heart Academy

Sacred Heart Academy has decided that they will be hosting their Junior Prom this year. SHA is an “all-girls,” private, catholic school. The principal, when asked if girls could bring girl friends (as friends), promptly said “no,” because of the pandemic. On the other hand, it was announced that girls could invite their male counterparts from any other local schools. This alone is unfair.

Another concern to be brought up is the trans community. Going off the principals blatant no to homosexuality, is it safe to assume that a trans man or non-binary individual from another school isn’t invited? What does this mean for the trans students already at SHA?

LGBT+ youth are already fighting enough battles for themselves in society. If SHA or any school is meant to be a safe place for students to express themselves, we cannot allow blatant discrimination against students for any reason.

I don’t see this as me fighting so I, a trans student, can attend. I see this as fighting the obvious homophobia, transphobia and bigotry of this school. It is, simply put, unfair that this petition needs to be made. 

Honestly, we are all just tired of fighting to have the same privileges as cisgender and heterosexual individuals. This discrimination is unnecessary.
