Logann Pruneda, a student at Bullard High in Fresno, says she was pelted with full juice boxes at school on Monday for being gay. It was her 16th birthday, reports Mackenzie Mays from The Fresno Bee at fresnobee.com.
The incident comes amid a push by the district to offer more support for LGBT students in response to criticism of comments by school board president Brooke Ashjian.
Ashjian is under fire for speaking out against LGBT-inclusive sex education lessons and for comparing LGBT advocates to perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide.
