High School Students Oppose School Board Protestors Claiming Book “Teaches Kids How To Be Gay”

Parents and other area residents showed up at a Community High School District 99 school board meeting in suburban Chicago on Monday night, holding signs that said “NO PORN” and attacking one specific book that had been approved for school libraries in the district: Gender Queer, an autobiographical graphic novel by Maia Kobabe. Parent Terry Newsome said at the meeting that the book is “liberal code for teaching children how to perform oral sex, anal sex, wear strap-on dildos.” Another father who was not named told the Chicago Sun-Times that the book made him “sick.” He hadn’t read it, he had just watched a YouTube video about it. But students weren’t having it. Senior Lauren Pierret said “Let’s not present getting rid of Gender Queer as censoring our children from sex. It’s homophobia.”

Texas GOP Lawmaker Demands To Know If Schools Have Books On Racism and LGBTQ People

State Rep. Matt Krause (R), chair of the Texas House Committee on General Investigating, sent a letter to the Texas Education Agency, in addition to some school district superintendents, that included a list of 850 books under investigation for containing information about racism or LGBTQ+ issues. He also said schools should identify any other books they have that cover topics related to sexuality, HIV/AIDS, and STIs, as well as any book that might make students feel “discomfort” or “psychological distress” by “consciously or unconsciously” implying that their race is “inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive,” using language from white parents this past year who protested school districts to stop teaching about racism. The list includes books on diversity and historic LGBTQ+ figures including books on Harvey Milk, “Being Jazz” by Jazz Jennings, and popular anti-fascist stories like V for Vendetta and The Handmaiden’s Tale.

University of Phoenix Employees Celebrate Phoenix Pride Parade OutBuro lgbtq professional entreprenuer networking online community gay lesbian transgender queer bisexual nonbinary

University of Phoenix Employees Celebrate Phoenix Pride Parade

Employee Resource Group leads participation in Phoenix community event

PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–University of Phoenix employees support the Phoenix Pride Parade, held November 6, the annual celebration of the LGBTQ+ community held in Phoenix, Arizona. University of Phoenix Employee Resource Group (ERG), Allies of Pride, with over 500 members, promotes the event to staff, students and faculty and provides volunteer support.

During the pandemic, many similar celebrations and in-person community events and support opportunities were cancelled or delayed.

“It’s important to remember that Pride is not just a parade or a specific month in which we celebrate. Pride is what we do every day. It’s what’s inside us, how we live our lives open and honestly and how we support each other. Pride is never cancelled,” shares Julie Fink, vice president of Human Resources at University of Phoenix. “However, we are excited to have a visual and in-person celebration of our community and support for each other, which is so critical as we emerge from a very difficult year and a half. This parade is an opportunity to celebrate, be together, and to support our loved ones, family members, and each other.”

The purpose of Allies of Pride employee resource group is to promote awareness within the University and community of LGBTQ understanding and acceptance. Additionally, the goal is to attract “allies” who support LGBTQ causes and rights to create a stronger support network both internally and externally of the organization.

“The University of Phoenix is dedicated to the work of advancing inclusion as part of its focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB),” Fink states. “It has received perfect successive scores on the HRC Corporate Equality Index. This highlights the University’s willingness to review practices to make changes or adapt to evolving nondiscrimination views.”

The HRC Corporate Equality Index is a self-reported system that evaluates workplace equality in regard to specific criteria, including workforce protections, inclusive benefits, supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility, and responsible citizenship. University of Phoenix has received a perfect Equality Index score consecutively over the past four years.

Queer News Tonight celebrates SpiritDay OutBuro LGBT professional entrepreneur online networking community gay lesbian bisexual transgender nonbinary

Queer News Tonight celebrates #SpiritDay

Spirit Day is an annual LGBTQ awareness day observed on the third Thursday in October. Started in 2010 by Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan, it was initially created in response to a rash of widely publicized bullying-related suicides of gay school students in 2010, including that of Tyler Clementi. Promoted by GLAAD, observers wear the color purple as a visible sign of support for LGBTQ youth and against bullying. Here at Queer News Tonight we will always report on the fight against bullying, and are here to support those who have been bullied.

University of Michigan Band Shows Halftime Show Support For LGBTQ+ Community

The University of Michigan marching band celebrated the school’s LGBTQ+ students, staff, and supporters on Saturday with a homecoming halftime show dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the university’s Spectrum Center — a space at the school that supports, advocates, and educates around LGBTQ+ topics. Music from the performance included hits from Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Kim Petras, Andrew Gold, Sister Sledge, and Cyndi Lauper. John Pasquale, a professor of conducting and the director of the university’s marching band, told The Advocate that he wanted to make a public statement in support of his students and in support of the Spectrum Center. “I was proud to do it. We just, as a community, came together and there it is.” He said the show took about seven to eight months to plan and coordinate. He then said

“The point we were trying to make is that love is love. And love wins.”

Texas House Speakers says Republicans Have the Votes to Ban Trans Kids from Sports

On Friday, Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan (R-21st District) claimed that Republicans have the votes to pass Senate Bill 3, which would force transgender students to compete in school sports in alignment with the gender listed on their original birth certificates. He told the Texas Tribune that one co-sponsor of the legislation “has close to 80 coauthors on the bill,” representing more than half of lawmakers seated in the chambers. Earlier versions of the bill have failed to pass as House Democrats ran down the clock before the voting deadline, or fled the state to stall the passage of it and voting suppression bills.

New Study Proves LGBTQ Youth Less Likely To Play Sports Because Of Fear of Bullying or Harassment

According to a research brief issued by The Trevor Project, fewer than 1 in 3 LGBTQ youth reported participating in some athletic activity, with only 32% saying they had ever participated in sports for a school, club, or community league. The data cited in the research brief was drawn from The Trevor Project’s annual survey on LGBTQ mental health. The survey, conducted in late 2020, polled 35,000 LGBTQ youth and individuals aged 13 to 24.

Students Sue School That Banned GSA and Pride Flag For Discrimination

The ACLU of Indiana is suing Pendleton Heights High School when students were denied their request to restart the school’s GSA. The school’s principal allowed them to meet afterschool but then said that they weren’t an “official” club. Being an official club would mean that they could talk on the school’s radio station, fundraise on school property, and advertise on the school’s bulletin board. The GSA isn’t even listed in the school’s student handbook.

These 10 religious universities earn high marks for LGBTQ inclusivity

On Monday’s episode of Queer News Tonight, we reported briefly on the Campus Pride “Best of the Best” report of the top 30 most LGBTQ+ friendly Colleges and Universities in the US, who all ranked a perfect “5” on their ranking system. Tonight we’d like to report on the 10 religious schools that Campus Pride recognized for “living up to LGBTQ-inclusive values.” Some religious institutions in the 2021 list did score a perfect 5 on the Campus Pride Index: Minneapolis’ Augsburg University, affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church; Guilford College, a Quaker school in Greensboro, North Carolina; and Virginia Wesleyan University, historically affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Emory University in Atlanta and Willamette University in Salem, Oregon — both affiliated with the United Methodist Church — each earned a 4.5. Others had slightly more modest grades: Jesuit Catholic schools Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles; Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Lebanon Valley College, a Methodist school in central Pennsylvania, all earned a 4.

Students walk out of school in support of teacher put on leave for coming out

Students walk out of school in support of teacher put on leave for coming out.

LGBTQ Nation reports that around 100 students at Winterset High School in Iowa walked out yesterday after a teacher was placed on leave for answering truthfully when a student asked if he is bisexual. At the beginning of the school year literature teacher, Lucas Kaufman shared a PowerPoint presentation with students so they could get to know him better. In a slide entitled “things that describe me” included a rainbow flag, a student asked him why he included a rainbow flag and he said that he’s bisexual. This made some parents angry even though some straight teachers tell their students all the time about their sexual orientation like when they talk about opposite partners their children or many other details from their lives. Many parents don’t like it when LGBTQ teachers do the same. One 8th grade student who participated in the walkout said “it’s showing how homophobic our town is and it’s not a good reputation for our school it’s proving that kids cannot come out without punishment.”
