(NYDAILYNEWS) — An Atlanta-area teen is suing his high school after he claims he was booted from his position as student body president for introducing changes that would make it easier for gay couples to be named prom king and queen.
Reuben Lack, a senior at Alpharetta High School, said he brought up the idea of a gay-friendly “prom court” during a student council meeting in January, according to the suit.
On Feb. 8, Lack says he was stripped of his presidency and for “pushing personal projects,” his lawyer said.
The 18-year-old filed the suit on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Atlanta in order to be reinstated as president.
The principal, two of the student government’s faculty advisers and the Fulton county school district were named in the lawsuit.
