A high school in Bakersfield, Calif., is investigating an alleged incident of harassment against students who participated in a meeting of an LGBTQ club. According to multiple social media posts, students from Frontier High School were confronted and bullied at the first meeting of the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) in the school year. The GSA is a student-led organization found in education establishments that aims to provide a safe and supportive environment for LGBTQ students — from middle-school to college — and their allies. After the meeting, which happened Wednesday, students from the Future Farmers of America (FFA) barged in, carrying Make America Great Again flags, shouting slurs and following them to the parking lot, according to local news station KGET. One of the students accused of harassing the GSA members, identified only as Matthew, told 23ABC News that he and his friends weren’t looking for any trouble, and they just joined the meeting out of curiosity. He claims the FFA wasn’t involved.
