Youth Fight for Queer Rights in Georgia

The New Standard (one of my favourite independent media organizations) has an articleup about students at a Georgia high school fighting to start and maintain a gay-straight alliance. The administration at White County High School have resorted to banning all “non-curricular” student group meetings on campus, asking for a “list of prospective members” and sending an assistant principal to sit in on every meeting. According to the article, some staff at the school “slammed PRIDE students into walls and hurled insults like ‘piece of shit lesbian.’” The students involved are now in court, backed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
