Malan High School under investigation following Queerphioa behavior by studens and staff

Western Cape education MEC Debbie Schäfer, confirmed an investigation was under way into allegations of queerphobia and discrimination at DF Malan High School.

The Cape Town high school in Belleville face backlash over a decision to ban pupils from showing solidarity with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

A group of learners were verbally abused last week when they gathered during break to mark the first week of International Pride Month. When the pupils reported the abuse to the headmaster, they were told not to repeat any provocative behavior, and all further pride action was banned.

The school has been accused of infringing upon the rights of learners from the LGBTQI+ community following the incident as the pupils ended up being subjected to discrimination by staff and pupils at the school.

A parent of one of the affected pupils also spoke out this week, slamming the school for targeting the pride pupils rather than those who targeted them.
