Love Wins

Several hundred people joined the Gay-Straight Alliance in an outpouring of support and pride, peacefully overpowering the handful of WBC members who showed up at Redondo Union High School to protest.

In early January, news began circulating through social media that members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), known for its controversial protests, would be bringing a message of hate to the borders of Redondo Union High School. The primary target of their protest: the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance, a campus group championing acceptance and understanding among fellow students. With the help of social media, a counter-protest was announced for January 11, the day WBC planned to arrive in Redondo. Blazing signs of love and inclusion, several hundred people joined the Gay-Straight Alliance in an outpouring of support and pride, peacefully overpowering the handful of WBC members who showed up. We’re incredibly proud of the students and the community allies who have their backs. Way to go, RUHS!
