Oh, I'm all TOO familiar with the Texas Republican stance on LGBT. Lived there for years. Taught at a TX high school. Believe me, you don't get much closer to anti-gay hatred than at TX schools, or so was my experience anyway.
Can anyone recommend a couple of excellent resources that are available in TX to educate/motivate teachers to stand up for students like Asher? I'm thinking of looking up GLSEN to see what they might offer.
But can anyone think of any other resource as well?
I've decided to write a letter to that school district and would like to include resource recommendations right in the letter.
When I lived in Houston, it didn't seem that there was much in the way of resources or organizations to counter the "I'm a big straight Texan and I hate gays" attitude. I imagine there must be something available now?
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
