A federal judge signed an order on Tuesday requiring a Florida school board to allow a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) student organization to form, meet, and be recognized at Vanguard High School in Ocala.
Facing a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the school district agreed to reverse the initial decision to prohibit the club and comply with the consent decree signed by U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales Howard.
“We are very happy about today’s victory,” Vanguard GSA president Dylan Lee, one of the plaintiffs in the case, said . “Now that it’s official, we’re excited for the GSA to start working to create a safer and more welcoming environment at our school when classes start again next week.”
