Buzzfeed publicizes plight of gay KY animal rescuer harassed, then fired from job despite 'spotless record'

One of Buzzfeed's community contributors has started a fund to help Kevin, now eating with the help of food stamps, to also feed his 300 animals.

Kevin worked as a public school teacher for fifteen years before retiring to run his farm full-time. A few years ago, he went back to work as the director of a day care center in Ashland, Kentucky. After being mocked and teased by co-workers and superiors at work, some of whom constantly referred to him as "twinkle toes", the center forced him to resign in spite of his spotless record.
