Wasilla High School Choir fights intolerance to perform Queen song at graduation

Wasilla's (Yes, that Wasilla) High School symphonic jazz choir has been rehearsing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" for their upcoming graduation all year.

Then, Principal Dwight Probasco yanked the classic hit from the playlist.


Because, allegedly, a parent (intolerant twit) had made multiple complaints of inappropriateness since Queen's phenomenal late lead singer, Freddie Mercury, was gay.

... People... people... people... (sighs and shakes head in mournful disappointment).

P.S.~ This Sad, But True story doesn't have what I'd describe as a "Happy Enlightened Ending" but... it does improve, somewhat.


Here's the link to the story:
