Earlier this week religious school Citipointe came under fire from a campaign led by former students and parents. YouTuber influencer Christisan Hull has also gotten involved.
It all started when the school was exposed for their “inhumane” contract for students.
The school is controversially asking families to sign a new enrolment contract. The contract asks students and parents to reject homosexual and transgender identities.
After discovering the contract Brisbane comedian Christian Hull started a campaign to raise awareness.
Christian Hull champions Citipointe campaign
Let’s be honest, Christian Hull is the last person we would expect to become an activist.
The out gay comedian and content creator is best known for his foul mouth, hating people and talking about his sex life.
But this week when he discovered the Citipointe school’s horrendous contract he spoke out.
However it didn’t stop there, the comedian continued to speak up against the school, launching a national campaign.
Parents and students also reached out to share their stories.
Hull continued to put pressure on the Citipointe school, sharing a petition calling on them to withdraw their contract.
The petition since garnered over 130,000 signatures.

Whilst it’s safe to say many people have shared this campaign, Christian has been relentless.
The dedication, consistency and exposure Christian Hull has put into this has paid off in spades.
On his Instagram alone Christian has over 250 thousand followers plus 1.2m on Faceook, enough to get people talking.
His first video about the campaign gained over 136,000 views
Following this students, parents and teachers continued to reach out.
