Gay couple banned from school dance…

A 16-year-old girl has claimed discrimination after her private Australian school banned her lesbian partner from the ball – and told her to bring a man instead.

Hannah Williams, a student at Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar, an independent Anglican school in Melbourne, complained to the Equal Opportunities Commission after she was told not to bring her 15-year-old girlfriend, Savannah Supski, to the dinner dance.

Miss Williams boycotted the event and told the Age newspaper: ‘It made me very upset. I thought it was unfair, so I didn’t go’.

Miss Supski said: ‘It was a homophobic issue and I feel extremely discriminated against’.

The school insisted yesterday that the ban was imposed because of age, not sexual orientation, but Miss Williams said her classmates had taken younger males to the ball.”
