“I honestly didn’t think I would see it in my time as a student, I thought at the very least we’d get the ball rolling towards something in five or ten years,” “We owe a lot to Nick Picon and his team and making this a concern of theirs, which really helped it get through to the administration.”
LGBTQIAs are a oppressed, ridiculed and dismissed minority. They have caused a lot of uproar due to the persistent resistance against their basic human rights. However the raise in awareness, has made the future of LGBTQIAs look brighter.
What does LGBTQIA mean?
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual
LGBTQIA is a more inclusive term than LGBT for people with non-mainstream sexual orientation or gender identity.
LGBTQIA Awareness Survey
In our school we have 90 students in the MYP department. We surveyed around 60 students, including some staff and faculty, if they knew anyone who was gay, lesbian, asexual, bisexual, transgender and intersex.
Out of these 60 people, altogether they knew 143 people who were either gay, lesbian, asexual, bisexual, transgender or intersex.
