A brawl at a Los Angeles high school on Tuesday was caught on camera and the video is going viral.

It began over recently installed gender-neutral bathrooms at the Santee Education Complex.

The protesters were across the street from the school when classes were dismissed. They were confronted by a group of students and a fight broke out.

One of the protesters was carrying a sign that said "Homo sex is a sin."

A man can also be heard in the video saying "Burn in hell, Santee."

According to NBC Los Angeles, it is the first gender-neutral bathroom at a high school in the state. 

One person was detained. No injuries were reported.

Santee Education Complex is part of the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools.
