Gay High School Basketball Player Excluded from Yearbook

In going two steps forward, perhaps sometimes unfortunately we much go one step back, this time in the sexual orientation hierarchy.

Gay Kentucky high school basketball player Dalton Maldonado, the starting point guard, was removed from the Betsy Layne High School yearbook tribute to the boys basketball team, the only senior not included.

Earlier this year, Maldonado came out at a game after being called a gay slur. When the opposing team chased him on the team bus in a car, his team rallied to his defense. Supposedly the team all joined together to support him.

But someone, somewhere did not get the message.
