A Symbol of Personhood: Russell Ball joins KYVD to discuss Three Rivers Pride flag ban

Russell Ball

Former Three Rivers Middle School teacher Russell Ball joins Keep Your Voice Down to talk about his recent resignation after Three Rivers Community Schools staff were asked to remove Pride flags from their classrooms due to an “external challenge.” Ball details the events leading up to his exit, what the flag represents to members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and why the flags should remain in classrooms not only in Three Rivers but around the world.


The show’s theme is “Howling at the Moon” by D Fine Us, and this week’s outro music is “Antionetta” by BoreÍs. You can support Keep Your Voice Down with a donation here.
