Triumphs and Setbacks of Gay Straight Alliances



Kennewick, Wash. Schools Reverse Position on Student Clubs X390 (GRAB) | ADVOCATE.COMMarch 2011: Rhode Island State representative Dan Gordon stated that youth at Tiverton High School were being “sexed-up” because of their GSA, in addition to saying the school should lose state funding. Gordon, a Republican, furthered his stance on a Providence radio station that drew much criticism from both the media and the general public.

Update: A few months later, Arne Duncan published his letter regarding equal rights and protections for gay-straight alliances; hopefully paving the way for further acceptance and tolerance.
