Teacher in Kentucky Who Was Called 'Queer' and 'Twinkle Toes' by Co-Workers and then Fired Because He Was Gay

He looks after abandoned animals and has a collection of Llamas. As he can't get a job in the great hate State of Kentucky, he's been reduced to accepting donations to keep them alive. Kentucky is one of 38 states where you can be fired at will for being gay.

Fantastic pictures and sad, but hopeful story at link. The guy deserves a rich husband.

Sweet guy with a tender heart. Of course, he's having a rough time of it. While the bigots that hassled him are probably thriving.

Hopefully, there are enough kind people (like the woman that started the fund) to help see him through this rocky time.

Good luck Kevin!

This is the Facebook page for the school that fired him. Feel free to give them a piece of your mind:

How horrible. He sounds like a really great guy, and anyone who loves animals as much as he does is A-OK in my book. I hope things turn in his favor.

I'm afraid that because his location is known that he and the llamas might become objects of, yes, I know, what a fucking drama -- hate crimes.

Because in places like where he lives, it's the natural progression. Let's see how the Kentucky Cunts do themselves otherwise.

I thought the same thing, r7. I didn't read the story, but I hope his roots serve him better.

Ellen needs to transplant him and the llamas to California.

Kentucky is a hellhole of desperation and Jesus. The only place more depressing is Oklahoma.

Time to sue (memo to ACLU)!

I haven't heard the label "twinkle toes" since the '70s.

Sent him a few bucks through OP's link.

Unfortunately, Kentucky has no laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation. He has no legal grounds on which to sue.

Wow! What a nice contrast in attitude toward the victim between this thread and the one about the openly gay mayoral candidate in MS.

If Jesus came back today and saw what was done in his name he'd never stop vomiting.

Kentucky is also one of those places where toilet paper (and using it thoroughly) and toothbrushes are baffling novelties; no wonder its reputation is that of a haven for the mentally retarded. Isn't one of their senators some former baseball player?

You can donate money to this guy?

Sounds like his flames could have been seen from space.

Watch this thread turn on a dime when they find out he's a republican.

Who are the "they" who are going to find out he's a Republican, r21?
