The emotional video from Austin Wallis detailing his departure from Lutheran North in Houston Texas is a heart breaker. Wallis was called into the principal’s office and given a choice. He was was given the option of either deleting his social profile and renounce his homosexuality or have his parents contacted and face expulsion.

His parents were called and after a second meeting at the school Wallis decided he didn’t have a choice. He left his school but didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye to his teachers and friends.

John Wright has in-depth reporting on this at the Texas Observer.
