Yay, Melbourne (though it's been done before)


Straight Students Wearing Gay T-Shirts? Fine by Me!

Last week, a Melbourne, Australia high school student was asked not to wear her “Nobody Knows I'm a Lesbian” t-shirt to school on picture day. She agreed to change the shirt, but several of her fellow students were outraged on her behalf, and wore their own versions of the t-shirt to school in protest (which included “Nobody knows I am bulimic”, “Nobody knows I'm pregnant” and “Nobody knows I'm on steroids”). Stephanie told her local paper that she was surprised and pleased by the support (although she still had to take off the t-shirt).

What is pretty amazing is that it happened in Strathmore, a north-west suburb of Melbourne.

Its amazing what a little t-shirt can do 🙂
