A yearbook article about a gay student’s experiences at Lenoir City High School has ignited both anger and support in the community.

“I have received an unbelievable number of emails from parents and concerned citizens,” said Lenoir City High School Principal Steve Millsaps.

Yearbooks were distributed on Friday … and by Monday local blogs were filled with postings about the article, titled “It’s OK to be Gay.”
