A performing arts teacher was left in shock when a parent of a couple of his students text messaged him to tell him that they would be pulled off from his class because of his ‘lifestyle’ choices.
Michael, the London-based teacher is gay. The parent, as a Christian, did not approve this and was worried about the influence the teacher will have on the children.
How will this parent continue their kids’ education in the theatre without EVER encountering a gay person remains a mystery. Quoting Michael’s words:
“Theatre without gays is like cooking without spices. So good luck with that. “
Michael’s response to the suggestion that his profession and passion for teaching is in any way affected by his sexuality is applause-worthy, and it immediately went viral on Twitter. Check it out for yourself below, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
