University of North Texas: No Gay Couples on Homecoming Court
A proposal to allow same-sex couples on the school's Homecoming Court has been shot down by the governing student body at the University of North Texas, the Dallas News reports:
"Five of the senators at the meeting voted Thursday to amend the Student Government Association’s bylaws, 10 voted against and eight abstained. Jason Howeth, a junior who represents the College of Music, said he voted against the proposal because of opposition from parents who threatened to remove their children from the school and alumni who said they would withdraw their financial support. He also said that the current student regulations do not prohibit homosexuals from running for a homecoming court position. Current student regulations state that the homecoming couple comprises a man and a woman."
