After controversy erupted last month when a high school principal cancelled a production of Rent, the School Edition, amid allegations of homophobia and discrimination (read the story here), she eventually reversed her decision, and the show will open on April 23. (The production will undoubtedly corrupt young minds, hearts, and souls because, you know, if straight kids are exposed to gay people enough, then they will turn into homosexuals. Then their parents will have to enroll them into ex-gay programs to beat the sin out of them, and that costs money. And in this economy, you really want to tighten the purse strings.)
But Principal Fal Asrani and Corona del Mar High School are not out of hot water quite yet. According to the OC Weekly, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California is moving ahead with a lawsuit against the school district and certain Corona del Mar High officials, including Asrani.
