Toronto's Catholic school board has reinstated the link to an LGBT support phone line on its website following outrage from the community.

The school board removed LGBT YouthLine from its website last week, citing what it described as "inappropriate material" on the site.

YouthLine said Toronto Catholic District School Board pointed to an article that claimed the group linked to pornography on its website.

The resource group says this is untrue and amounts to "overt homophobia and transphobia."

The board says the removal was a result of online content deemed inappropriate for school-aged children."

The group urged the board to repost the resource and retract its decision.
