I presented at the Long Island LGBT Forum at SUNY Old Westbury today.
Here are the Slides .
Takeaways from the discussion:
- Middle School’s are still difficult places to implement GSA clubs.
- Potential club name: Gay Lesbian or Whatever… love this!
- Some fledgling clubs on Long Island will collaborate with more experienced clubs.
- New clubs/ students at middle level feel overwhelmed… collaboration will help.
Once again, the connected education conversation emerged! There are ENORMOUS opportunities for pro-LGBT educators to connect with other like-minded educators on Twitter, Voxer, EdCamps… Isolation is a choice. For me this was an epiphany! There is SO much isolation and secrecy associated with LGBT issues… use connecetedness to find support, get ideas and tell your story!!
