Day-of-Silence

 

 

Amber Hatcher, a 16-year-old lesbian, student in the state of Florida, wanted to observe the National Day of Silence which took place on April 20 and which is a campaign organized by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) for increasing students-and-teachers' awareness of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools

 

The principle is simple: to remain silent during a day to call attention to the silencing effect of bullying.

 

So Amber, wishing to observe this campaign last April within her school, had required the permission of the her school principal Shannon Fusco who immediately threatened her with "ramifications"

graduate

I am about to graduate from a women’s college in Virginia. I have always loved it here: the people, the community. Generally, I feel safe. I feel secure. I know I can walk around campus holding hands with my girlfriend and no one will care. But trans issues at a women’s college are complicated. Again, I know I am safe, but there are constraints to that safety.

According to transgenderlaw.org, almost 400 colleges and universities have protections for genderqueer students. Some states are more progressive than others. It’s always a good idea to look up the policy at any college or university you are considering.
