Outrage after Seminole County agrees to issue refunds, reprints for yearbook featuring LGBTQ spread

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Some parents are outraged over a local high school yearbook, leading to a heated back and forth in Seminole County Tuesday.


The school district agreed to reprint or refund yearbooks at Lyman High School that included an LGBTQ spread.

The pages in question brought people from both sides out. One side said they want the board to say they’re not going to reprint or refund anyone over the issue, while the other side said the spread did not belong in the yearbook in the first place.
