Plans are well under way for the North County LGBTQ Resource Center’s fifth annual GSA Awards. The event, presented by the Center’s Project Youth committee, has a new location this year – Palomar College in San Marcos.
Palomar College President Bob Deegan calls football recruit Jamie Kuntz and promises him a “fair tryout” if he decides to come to Palomar College this spring, but the gay linebacker has different thoughts about that.
Palomar College blows an amazing chance to show the world that it fully embraces an all-inclusive athletic program, and it fumbles a grand opportunity to shatter the glass ceiling that exists for openly gay jocks.
Palomar College could have made history by welcoming an openly gay football player, an All-Star athlete to boot, to its football team and becoming a shining example of an all-inclusive athletic program. Instead, the college is on the defense.
