Diversity and Learning: Ending the Silence--Starting a Gay/Straight Alliance.
Brickley, Lori
This paper recounts the personal experiences of a bisexual high school teacher and a mother when she participated, with her students and her colleagues, in a camp organized by the National Council for Community and Justice and designed to make participants examine their ideas about homosexuality. The paper reports on the teacher's unsuccessful efforts to start a support group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and questioning students on her high school campus. The teacher and other interested individuals put together a diversity workshop during a professional growth day, and, as a result the support group became a reality, the Gay/Straight Alliance was born. The paper concludes by describing some of the Alliance's activities at the high school. (BT)
