PITTSBURGH (WPVI) -- Students at a Pittsburgh-area high school are upset after some of their peers organized an "anti-gay" day.

Some of the students at McGuffey High School in Claysville who participated in the event wore matching flannel shirts and showed off the words "anti-gay" on their hands.

The incident happened a day after the nationally-observed Day of Silence, which addresses the problem of anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender bullying in schools.

Those involved also posted Bible verses on the lockers of gay students.

Outraged by what they call inaction by the school district to address anti-gay day, some opposing students rallied against administrators - armed with signs saying "it gets better" and "stick with love."

School officials have remained tight-lipped but say they are investigating.
