Battling Homophobia at East Side Community School
Saturday, June 29, 2013
At East Side Community School homophobia isn’t tolerated. Kids say that teasing and bullying are rare and when it does happen, teachers and fellow students get involved to stop it. The school has an active gay-straight alliance club, “Rainbow Bright”, and teachers strive to be inclusive in their curricula and language. But not all schools are so supportive of LGTBQ students and homophobia is everywhere. Four East Side students want to find out what actually helps homophobic people change their minds to become more accepting.
