This shouldn't even be a story. Some people are gay. It's time to get over it. Most people have.

I've heard stories from people who say that GSA clubs were their salvation in high school. Surrounded by anti-gay bigotry, they constantly felt anxious and unsafe in high school. Having a place to go where they were valued and accepted made the difference between despair and a successful high school experience.

I hope our school board makes the right choice here and allows this club. And I hope the students take advantage of it. It can make a real, positive difference in the lives of a lot of kids.
