Let's Stop Ignoring Our Gay and Lesbian Youth.
Edwards, Ann T.
Educational Leadership, v54 n7 p68-70 Apr 1997
Many gay and lesbian students are victimized by others' silence and bigotry. The author discusses her decision to accept her son's gayness, help other parents, and advise educators on creating a welcoming school environment. Educators should use appropriate terms, provide classroom speakers, challenge homophobic remarks, provide positive role models, demand inservice training, and create "mixed" social situations. (MLH)
