Brian Cody Bray, a teacher at Maumelle Charter High School in Little Rock, Ark., was fired after a hacker posted a sex tape featuring Bray on the school website. The 29-year-old educator is openly gay, and the tape depicted Bray having consensual sex with a man.

The hacker(s) allegedly gained access to Bray’s email and Drop Box account; they changed the name of the folder from “Private” to “FagTeachBray,” which indicates he was targeted for being gay.

According to Bray, he was home on sick leave when a co-worker called to tell him about the tape. Bray told The Washington Blade, “Pretty much immediately after that phone call, I went to the bathroom and threw up … I was just in shock that oh my God, this is something that will impact my career, impact my life and what am I going to do?”

Bray says he understands the school’s decision to terminate his position, “Of course I had to be dismissed at the time because I lost any kind of authority with my students there.”

The school also denied Bray severance pay and believe he was at fault. In an effort to alleviate some financial stress, Bray established a GoFundMe page. If you have time, check it out.
