Transcript: Additional Thoughts: What if the parent threatens to withdraw their child from your class in protest? What if the parent becomes belligerent on the topic? What if the parent threatens to go to the media? A male student approaches you in private and reveals to you that they are gay. They are concerned with suffering harassment from their friends and fellow students if this fact is revealed. How do you handle the situation? A parent contacts you after a lesson on diversity, inclusion, and homosexuality and demands to know why you are "promoting homosexuality to their child". What really matters is how you handle yourself dealing with these issues. Conclusion If you want to know more, we have additional resources that might be valuable to you! We will now be breaking into a number of small discussion groups. A series of scenarios will be presented for you to discuss. Try to come to a collective agreement on how best to handle each situation. One member from each group will quickly describe their solution. There are resources available for you, your students, and their parents to help tackle these issues Groups such as Gay-Straight Alliance groups have been shown to have huge impacts on these issues. Join up and help out in your school if you can. Let students know that you are a safe and confidential option to speak to. Know your schools policy on LGBT issues. If it is inadequate, speak up! Know your rights and responsibilities as well as those of the administration. Do not accept inactivity on these issues. And now a challenge: Responding to Homophobia in High Schools, Halton District School Board, Halton, Ontario http://www.hdsb.ca/Programs/Documents/SAIS-Responding%20to%20Homophobia%20in%20High%20Schools.pdf The Critical Points: Additional Thoughts: If the situation was private, would you react differently? If you do intervene, how do you proceed if the student simply comes back with "Whatever..." Scenario 2: Questions? Concerns? Did we miss anything? A Queer Day in Canada: Examining Canadian High School Students’ Experiences With School-Based Homophobia in Two Large-Scale Studies Tracey Peter, Catherine Taylor, Line Chamberland Journal of Homosexuality Additional Thoughts: Would your response be any different if it was a girl? A racial minority? What if they feel they identify as a different gender? How would things be different if they wanted to come out themselves? Scenario 3: LGBTQT Students suffer a disproportionate levels of harassment and abuse Not solely a LGBTQT issue, but also a student safety issue How mainstream language, not just insults, is harmful The Statistics Involved: While walking down the halls of the school, you hear a number of students engaged in conversation frustrated about something and one announces “That’s so fucking gay!” in earshot of many other students. As a teacher, how do you react to this? Issues and Perspectives on Sexual Identity and Orientation Teacher Daniel Mark Ogloff suspended for homophobic prank, CBC Canada http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/teacher-daniel-mark-ogloff-suspended-for-homophobic-prank-1.2777023 (We really do want to know) And now the wider impact! A Troubling Perspective... For each group: What was your final solution to the challenge presented? Did any of the alternative points make a big difference in how you would have handled the situation? For everyone else: Do you have any questions or concerns over their strategy? Mark Roth and James Gibson Scenario 1: Thank you! References

Transcript: 1. We posted on our group social media daily trying to reach groups that had a common goal with us. We found out that when we did reach out to these groups, our viewership went up. 2. When we passed out notecards with our social media platforms and our website links, our viewership was expected to go up, but didn't. 3. When we posted on our personal social medias (Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr), asking others to follow our group accounts/check our website, viewership went up exceptionally. Gay Why does this matter? Lesbian The Issue: - Seeing beyond society's status quo and coming together as one with a common goal. - There are no limitations when it comes to art and music. Art is an international language for social protest. One commonality that we all have is music. Bisexual Impact: suicideinlgbtcommunities.weebly.com Our website: We plan to make more advances with our website and our social media platforms. By doing this we plan to advance our knowledge by doing: Going to lgbt parades/rallies Educate parents about the issue by holding information nights/seminars Start a support group for those who have attempted suicide or for people who have lost someone because of suicide - We believe that no one should be put down for who they want to love or become. - "Its such a shame that people aren't accepted for who they are. Love is a human experience - not a political statement. You don't have to be gay to be a supporter, you just have to be human. If anybody can find someone to love them in this world, then I fully support that in any shape or form," (Selena Carrasco). Why we care? Tweets: In the article Leelah's mother Carla stated, "We don't support that, religiously," ... What Leelah Alcorn then wrote in her suicide note was, "My death needs to be counted in the number of transgender people who commit suicide this year. I want someone to look at that number and say “that’s fucked up” and fix it. Fix society. Please."

It describes ones sexual orientation or how they identify themselves. Suicide in LGBT Communities Our Social Media Platforms: Plans For the future: Videos Thousands of teens are committing suicide because they're not accepted for their sexual orientation. They'd rather be dead, than face the people who make them feel horrible about themselves. Sources "Kids React to Gay Marriage." YouTube. YouTube. Web. 4 Feb. 2015. " Love Is Love." Youtube. Youtube. Web. 4 Feb. 2015 Final Thoughts What is LGBT? Pictures Suicide in LGBT is something major in the teenage media. Teens get judged because of their sexual orientation. Because they are not heterosexual, they get bullied and they can't take it anymore and they have no way to debrief. With no way out they result in self-harming or even worse suicide.
