HELP NEEDED: LGBTQ YOUTH – SPEAK OUT ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL

HELP NEEDED: LGBTQ YOUTH – SPEAK OUT ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL
EXPERIENCES!

Help GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) inform
education policymakers and the public about what’s really
going on in our nation’s schools by completing the 2011
National School Climate Survey, GLSEN’s seventh national
survey about the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender
and queer youth in school.
If you attended high school or middle school sometime during the
last school year (2010-2011) and are at least 13 years old, tell us
about your experiences in school. (If you did not complete the
entire school year you can still participate in the survey.) The
survey is anonymous.
For more info and to complete the survey online, visit: www.glsen.org/2011survey

NJ Library removes queer teen book after pressure from 9.12 group

A public library system in Burlington County, NJ has removed the book
Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology after pressure
from a local Glenn Beck 9.12 group. The libraries removed the book even
though there was no formal complaint after being contacted by the activist
who succeeded in getting the book banned from the regional high school
several months ago. Read more on change.org:
