(Daily Caller) A Florida gay group pushed back against the notion that the arrest of Kate Hunt, the 18-year-old lesbian charged with having sex with an underage female student, is a gay rights issue.

“We have not been able to find where the charges brought against this unfortunate young lady are inspired by homophobia, or are in any way anti-LGBTQ,” wrote David McKinnon, president of the Vero Beach, Florida chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, in a statement.

Hunt admitted to having a sexual relationship with her 14-year-old girlfriend. The two girls attended the same high school and were on the basketball team together.
