Let's Stop Ignoring Our Gay and Lesbian Youth.

Edwards, Ann T.

Abstract: Many gay and lesbian students are victimized by others' silence and bigotry. The author discusses her decision to accept her son's gayness, help other parents, and advise educators on creating a welcoming school environment. Educators should use appropriate terms, provide classroom speakers, challenge homophobic remarks, provide positive role models, demand inservice training, and create "mixed" social situations. (MLH)
