A bill that would prohibit teachers from talking about issues regarding sexual orientation in the classroom before the ninth grade has advanced in Tennessee’s Senate.
At COLAGE we know that many people with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) parents face challenges and isolation because their families are not reflected in school curriculum or discussions. We also know that when bills like this are splashed across newspaper pages, twitter, and facebook, people with LGBTQ parents experience increased bullying and discrimination.
Families come in all shapes and sizes so it is vital for our youth that all families are celebrated in schools.
Stay tuned to COLAGE.org for upcoming related updates and action alerts.
Please donate to COLAGE today so that we can continue to advocate for a world in which all families are treated with respect and equality.
