Homosexual Teacher Explains Decision to Pose ‘Visibly Queer’ in White House Photo With Trump

When Rhode Island’s teacher of the year took his turn in front of the camera with President Trump, he struck a pose some took as an act of defiance:

Nikos Giannopoulos cocked his head ever so slightly away from the president, toward a black lace fan he’d brought with him. He wore a rainbow pin on his lapel, a ring through his nose and a gold anchor around his neck.

“Bold, Gay Teacher Of The Year Photo Bombs Donald Trump With Fan,” was HuffPost’s first headline (later toned down) after Giannopoulos posted the photo on Facebook on Thursday and quickly amassed thousands of shares. WASHINGTON POST
