State laws, codes of conduct and school board policies are great first steps in the process of safeguarding and bringing equality to LGBT students. However, they are not enough. School superintendents and principals must do their part by creating inclusive school environments.
Opponents of the FAIR Education Law really believe it is part of a gay conspiracy and that it's designed to make kids gay. I know because I got to witness them talking about it firsthand the other night at Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Calif.
It is crucial that we continue to stand united and stand in support of California's SB 48, the FAIR Act. Our families and communities will be stronger when we begin to recognize the value of every voice and the contributions of every person.
