Ask any gay, lesbian, transgender person about their school life and they will tell you how they were abused, beaten up and discriminated against for not being heterosexual. Most LGBTQ students are harassed at school for being who they are. They are teased for being different, harassed and called names for being too manly or too effeminate.
Homophobia is a huge concern in schools.
A young boy or girl trying to come to terms with being gay will be afraid to accept his/her sexuality in a homophobic environment. That is why it is important for schools to celebrate diversity and help students - gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, straight - develop confidence. Everyone deserves to go to school without the fear of being harassed for their choices.
GLSEN has been working for over 25 years towards to end discrimination, harassment, and bullying based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in K-12 schools in America.
GLSEN want to ensure safe and inclusive schools for LGBTQ students in America. They believe that every student, in every school, should be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. All students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow.
GLSEN develops lesson plans, classroom materials and other such programs for teachers on how to support LGBT students. They are working towards enacting and implementing LGBT-inclusive anti-bullying laws and policies.
They have worked with the U.S. Departments of Education, Justice, and Health and Human Services to create model policies that support LGBT students and educators and implementation guides to ensure that these policies are considered, passed, and implemented. They believe that change will come when we work collectively towards safeguarding LGBT students.
