Teacher In Florida Fired Because Of Sexual Orientation

After an anonymous call to officials of Covenant Christian School in Palm Beach, teacher Monica Toro Lisciandro was fired for being gay, according to ‘LGBTQ Nation’. 

“Well, it’s true,” Lisciandro replayed when the school accused her of being gay. Shortly after she was fired. The school then informed parents via letter that she’d no longer be teaching due to “personal reasons.”

“I can’t be silent about it,” Lisciandro said. “I want kids to see me and know that you can be a Christian and you can be gay. You can be gay, you can teach at a Christian school…. to think that something like this could happen to them makes me feel really upset and angry, because they deserve better.”
