WATCH: High School Senior Suspended For Wearing 'Nobody Knowns I'm a Lesbian' T-Shirt


Chesnee High School's Briana Popour was suspended from school after a pro-LGBT shirt she was wearing on campus was deemed 'disruptive.'

A South Carolina high school student was suspended last week after a T-shirt she was wearing that said "Nobody Knows I'm a Lesbian" in bold letters was judged to be "disruptive."

According to Charleston TV station WCBD, out Chesnee High School senior Briana Popour was asked to change out of her "Nobody Knows I'm a Lesbian" shirt by a school administrator who said he found the shirt offensive, and after she refused to do so, was later suspended.

When she noted that there was nothing in the school handbook that said she couldn't wear her pro-LGBT shirt on campus, the school administrator told her "not everything is in the handbook," reports WCBD as well as another station, WSPA.

"He does not like people in his school wearing anything that says anything about lesbians, gays, or bisexuals," Popour said.

"Isn't that what school is supposed to teach you? To be happy with who you are?" she continued. "Maybe people will be more comfortable showing who they are because you should be able to wear what you want to wear."
