Anti-Gay Bigots in Sullivan, Indiana, Put Their Facebook Page Back Up

Posted by Dan Savage on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 9:45 AM

Shortly after I wrote my first post about efforts in Sullivan, Indiana, to organize a "traditional prom" that excluded LGBT students, the group's Facebook page disappeared. Now it's back up. And the "traditional prom" is now open to "any junior or senior or homeschooler in that grade in all surrounding counties" because it seems that there aren't enough bigoted high school students in Sullivan alone to fill a gym. (And the haters prom isn't open to "any junior or senior," it's open to any straight junior or senior.

The haters' Facebook page currently has 54 members, down from its pre-media-shitstorm high of 61. The Facebook page backing an inclusive prom—Support the Sullivan High School Prom for All Students—currently has 28,063 members.
