Christian Bales is a gay valedictorian who was banned from speaking at Covington graduation. Needless to say, he is 'not surprised' by D.C. controversy that went viral so fast. And here is what the Typical Student team will tell you in this post!
Christian Bales is 19 y.o. He wasn’t allowed to speak on his own graduation due to his sexual orientation. Recently, Christian shared his thoughts about a well-known Covington Catholic High School video that literally exposed the web space this week. In a word, the video shows white students from Covington Catholic High School confronting a Native American old man at the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C.
Not The First Case
The officials claim that is was not the only time when scandal took place. In 2018, the local Catholic diocese ruled just hours before Holy Cross High School's graduation that the openly gay valedictorian and the student council president could not give their planned speeches at the Covington school's official graduation ceremony.
Here is what Christian said about it:
“I was not surprised at all. It was only a matter of time that something this school community did would blow up to this degree, and I think they need to be held accountable. They have the very last say in everything about students in the diocese.”
He also added that the explanations still have not been provided.
