You’ve found us out, Pete: We want gay kids to be treated like humans
Good As You:: Gay and Lesbian Activism With a Sense of Humor

I am heartened by the work of people like Kevin Jennings (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network founder and executive director) and currently Obama education appointee. This entry focuses on comments made by Mr Jennings at GLSEN’s Mid-Atlantic conference, held October 25, 1997. It speaks to a wide held view among our detractors that we actively recruit people to become gay, otherwise known as the gay agenda. The spectre of McCarthyism figures highly in my thoughts on this view, it is 2009 our kids deserve better than to suffer under the hysteria of 1950’s bigotry. GLSEN gives them that chance to be who they are and find respect and acceptance in the communities they live.
