I'm tired of asking this. And I think you probably are too.
When it comes to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, just how bad do things have to get before they change?
It's tough being a teenager anywhere, but being a student in Minnesota's Anoka-Hennepin School District is especially hard. Why? Because there's actually a "gag policy" that prevents school staff from talking about LGBT issues.
The bottom line is that this gag policy has created an environment where LGBT kids are relentlessly and cruelly bullied.
Even after seven teenagers in the district, including at least four who were known or perceived to be LGBT, took their own lives, school-district administrators and elected officials refuse to help.
NCLR has filed a lawsuit against the school district demanding that it immediately repeal the gag policy, and to take action to address the bullying and harassment that LGBT students are regularly facing. The lawsuit is underway, and now it's time to take action.
