A bisexual teacher in Kentucky is suing his school district for allegedly firing him for coming out as bisexual.
Nicholas Breiner did not have his contract renewed with Montgomery County School District for 2017-2018 shortly after he posted on Instagram he was bisexual, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. Matthew Thompson, the district’s superintendent, said that the contract renewal was not related to the Instagram post.
Breiner had been told that the reason for not receiving a new contract was due to budget issues, according to the Herald-Leader. Breiner later found out his position was filled by a heterosexual woman.
He had previously filed a lawsuit in the county before filing his federal lawsuit.
