From NY Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/discrimination-suit-prestigious-upper-west-side-school-article-1.1552016) by Barbara Ross and Dareh Gregorian:

A married heterosexual dad says he was booted from his coaching job at a prestigious Upper West Side private school because he didn't play for the other team.

In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Gregory Kenney, 50, says he was targeted for termination from the Trinity School because his lesbian supervisor was biased against straight family men.

Kenney said he'd "enjoyed a positive relationship with administrators, staff and fellow teachers" at the West 91st St. school for well over a decade - until he was "placed under the supervision and leadership of a homosexual, single female administrator with no children."

That administrator, Pat Krieger, piled extra work on Kenney to make it impossible for him to spend time with his wife and kids, the suit says.

Krieger demanded he "coach soccer, basketball and golf, knowing that those sports required nights, weekends, summer commitments and holidays, and that it would interfere with plaintiff's responsibilities to his wife and young children," the suit says.

But while his contract only called for him to work two of three school seasons, Krieger insisted he work all three, the suit says.
