Texas Teacher Disciplined for Coming Out Wins Big Settlement

An elementary school art teacher who was suspended for showing her class a picture of her wife has reached a $100,000 settlement. Stacy Bailey was introducing herself to her 4th grade class, and showing them a slideshow of her friends and family, including her then fiancé. A parent complained that Bailey was "promoting the homosexual agenda," and she was suspended for eight months. Two years later, the Mansfield Independent School District settled, agreeing to pay Bailey $100,000 and implement an LGBTQ training for the districts H.R. and counseling staff. Gay USA hosts, Andy Humm and Ann Northrop, discuss the case and the settlement.

Gay USA, the longest-running LGBT news show in history, offers comprehensive news and analysis by and about the LGBTQ community. The program features lively repartee between hosts Ann Northrop and Andy Humm, as well as interviews with special guests. Our goal each week is to keep our viewers up-to-date on the latest developments in the LGBTQ+ community in the United States and abroad.  With decades of experience in journalism and activism, we work diligently to provide historical context for the stories we cover.
