YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Parents and students at York High School are calling for the community to work together to fight bullying after a gay student was targeted.
Dozens of students rallied across from the school on Monday morning with signs saying 'Be Kind' and 'You Are Beautiful.'
York High School students and their parents said their peer has been bullied so badly that they have called school administrators to complain.
Some students say the bullying has not eased up.

Students told NEWS CENTER they are not just protesting the bullying of this one student but of any student facing bullying. The York students also say they are standing in support of LGBTQ acceptance.
NEWS CENTER has reached out to York High School administrators but has not heard back yet.
