ACLU and Yale launch campaign to stop censoring LGBT websites in schools
ACLU has teamed up with Yale Law School to launch the “Don’t Filter Me” campaign, which aims to stop censorship of websites in public high schools.
The ACLU blog post reports that some schools have been blocking LGBT-related websites such as the GSA Network and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
These schools even allow students to access to anti-LGBT sites that condemn LGBT people or urge LGBT people to try to change our sexual orientation. The ACLU describes this as viewpoint discrimination.
ACLU asks students to report unconstitutional web filtering at their schools by filling out a form at action.aclu.org/dontfilterme.

In February fab.com is giving $1 to gay youth charities for each new member. That’s $1 to GLSEN and The Trevor Project for each new person who joins fab.com. Today we go behind the scenes at GLSEN to learn about the important work they are doing to support gay youth.

Make 10,000 Schools Safer for LGBTQA Youth

projectqueer:

Vote for GLSEN, please! The organization needs your help. There are only 4 days left to vote, and they’re in 3rd place. Only the top 2 ideas win. I know there are tons of LGBT-friendly people on tumblr, so this should be reblogged like crazy! :)

Every vote counts and matters. GLSEN does amazing work — trying to make K-12 schools safe for everyone regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. This organization is close to my heart and the hearts of many others. Supporting GLSEN will make a difference and an impact for LGBTQA students across the nation.

Hey! I am actually doing a research paper on Homophobia and everything you’ve post so far has been very helpful! :D I was wondering if there are other sources that will be helpful for me for completion on the research?

I’m glad! :D If you haven’t checked out my ‘homophobia' tag, that would be a good place to start probably…  

  • We Give a Damn would be good. It’s mostly about equality, but the Youth School/Suicide information could be helpful.
  • Day of Silence information (This Friday! Get excited!)
  • Think B4 You Speak, about taking a stand against anti-LGBT language
  • Some of GLSEN’s research, (The survey of 6,209 middle and high school students conducted during 2007 found that nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT students (86.2%) experienced harassment at school in the previous year.)

Those are good as far as homophobia among schools and youth goes, though I’m not sure exactly what on homophobia you’re trying to cover since it’s such a wide topic. Good luck and write me again if you have any more questions! :D
