Delicious Dissent of the Day: While St. Joseph Catholic Secondary School begrudgingly allowed its unofficial gay-straight alliance to move forward with its anti-homophobia event, it banned the display of rainbows, which the Ontario-based institution said are “associated with Pride.”
“There’s so many other things that a rainbow could be,” said the unofficial GSA’s 16-year-old founder, Leanne Iskander. “It’s ridiculous.”
Refusing to let the school’s anti-rainbow policy stop them from being Proud, the students decided to bake multicolored cupcakes and arrange them in a rainbow pattern. The best part? There were rainbows baked inside.
The event wasn’t without its hitches — the school banned most of the group’s literature on gender identity and safe sex and refused to allow the money raised to be donated to an LGBT charity — but Iskander vows to keep fighting the good fight until every Catholic school in Ontario has its own official GSA.

I will forever admire how kids these days come out so young, and stand strong and proud. Also, these look delicious.
