This is a mostly affirming story about the former deputy head of a school who was forced to resign amid backlash after he came out as gay.
Topics: Discrimination, Outing, School, and Workplace
LGBTQI+ Identities: "homosexuality" (abstract) and Gay
Journalistic Issues: Journalistic approach is fair, balanced, objective, Language/terminology is inaccurate/misused but with no apparent malice, LGBTQI+A voices missing entirely (zero), and Negative myths/stereotypes are left unchallenged
Some biased phrases like “admitting he was gay” should not be used. The quote from one parent is especially nuanced and affirming.
