All Raymond Tullier, a high school junior, and his boyfriend Nicholas Newport, a sophomore, wanted was to go to their school prom together, drink punch and dance with their friends. But when the assistant principal, Lindy Gill, got wind of their plans, she immediately revoked their tickets.

Tuillier and Newport attend The French Settlement High School, a public school in Livingston Parish, LA with approximately 400 students. On Friday, Gill, a devout Baptist and member of an online club called “I found JESUS,” told the boys that same-sex couples attending the prom together was “against school regulations,” though the school’s official handbook makes absolutely no mention of this.

But it gets worse. Because after Gill denied the boys tickets to the dance, she suspended one of them.

Tullier sent a text message to his mother, Tamblie Babin, about what happened. She, in turn, called Gill to ask why her son and his boyfriend being denied entry to the prom.

“She said they didn’t allow same sex going to prom together,” Babin told WBRZ-TV, “it was against school regulations.”

Immediately after getting off the phone with Babin, Gill called Tullier into her office and suspended him for using his cell phone during school hours to text his mother for help.

After everything was said and done, the school ultimately allowed the boys to purchase tickets and attend the prom, which was held over the weekend. Meanwhile, Livingston Parish School Superintendent, John Watson, called for an investigation into the matter.

So far, the school is not saying whether Gill would be reprimanded for her actions, though according to the official handbook, “bullying of any kind, including cyberbullying, will not be tolerated and will be subject to disciplinary action.”
