Minnesota Lesbian Claims She was Told Not To Apply as Catholic School Coach

A former athlete at Lourdes High School in Minnesota said she was not allowed to coach at the school due to her sexuality. 

Katie Erbe-Shea had inquired about the job coaching junior varsity and freshman basketball but was told her “lifestyle choices” would not allow her to be hired, according to the Rochester Post-Bulletin. She had previously played basketball at the school in the 1990s, graduating in 1995. 

“My personal life would have nothing to do with what kind of coach I would be and how I’d coach those girls,” Erbe-Shea said. “This just hit me like a ton of bricks.”  

Erbe-Shea said she did not apply because of this conversation. The school said that they could not comment on the situation because there was no application made.
