Arkansas high school senior turns tables on school after pulling his yearbook profile because he's gay

Taylor Ellis, a high school senior at Sheridan High School in Sheridan, Arkansas, “disowned” the school after it pulled his profile form his yearbook after he came out as gay in the profile.  CNN featured the story today here.   Sheridan is about 30 miles south of Little Rock.
  
The school district claims it cannot let itself be manipulated by special groups. 
  
But even in a conservative southern state, Ellis has gotten a lot of support, according to the story. 

Slate has an even stronger story here
