When this teacher received a homophobic text message from a parent he responded in the most incredible way

It’s a sad fact of life that even today, in 2018, many members of the LGBT+ community still face bigotry and homophobia. Indy 100 reports.

However, the LGBT+ community are continually fighting back and making progress, and this teacher’s response to a homophobic text message is just one brilliant example. 

Performing arts teacher Michael Neri from London got the shock of his life when he received a homophobic text message from a parent of one of the children in his class. 

In the text message, the parent said that they wanted to remove their child from his class because of his ‘lifestyle’ choices because of their Christian beliefs:
