Since January 2006, I've sponsored the Gay Straight Alliance at Galileo Academy.
Its core membership has formed a recognizable and influential student-led organization within the school community, meeting every week on Thursdays, presenting at faculty meetings, and participating in whole-school social events.
As part of the GSA service to the school, I am asking for your support to help us purchase district-approved audiovisual resources on GSA-related topics for the school library. Library borrowing policies will for the first time allow student borrowing from this special title group within the larger video collection. The school fiction and non-fiction book collections already have an adequate number of titles addressing the needs and interests of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The addition of video and DVD titles will increase student access to this important information. Here are the titles we'll be making available with your support:
My Beautiful Laundrette
The Celluloid Closet
Degrassi Junior High: Complete
Edge of Seventeen
The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love
But I'm a Cheerleader
Kissing Jessica Stein
Boys Don't Cry
Object Of My Affection
Show Me Love
