DA: 3 Charged Following “No Gay Thursday” Hazing At Chester County High School

By Jim Melwert

TREDYFFRIN Twp., Pa. (CBS) — District Attorney Tom Hogan calls this a simple case of ignorance, violence and what he calls a shocking lack of supervision.

It involves players of Conestoga High School’s varsity football team, and a hazing tradition, for lack of a better term, that was known as “no-gay Thursday.”

“No gay Thursday,” according to Hogan, meant things that would normally be considered gay, were not gay when done by upperclassmen to underclassmen in the locker-room.

Examples include a senior walking up behind a underclassman and putting his genitals on the younger player’s head; a freshman being forced to undress an upperclassman, or underclassmen being forced to strip to their underwear and clean the locker-room.
