Dynasty Young, the bullied gay teen expelled from Indianapolis' Arsenal Technical High School last week for carrying a self-protection device, has been attacked and punched at a shopping mall. Khyran R. Delay, 34, has been identified as the assailant.

GLAAD has worked with Dynasty Young, and his mother, Chelisa Grimes, and we are saddened to learn that Dynasty has suffered more harm just because he happens to be gay.  For more information on our work with Dynasty and Chelisa, please see the following blog posts:
