Agree or Disagree: The Podcast-Why we need GSA's.An interview with a High School Student and Parent
Click this link for part 3 of our series of conversations around Gay Straight Alliances. We heard from people who had some concerns about GSA's. If you missed that, click here. It was with Jojo Ruba, Derek Fildebrandt, Terry Lo and Jeff Wilson.
The second was with Kent Hehr. If you missed that, click the link here.
This perspective is from a High School student named Caprice and her mother Diane. Caprice is in Grade 10. She is slowly opening up about who she is and her mom is there to support her.
We also heard from Kelly Hofer. If you haven't heard his story, we touch on it briefly here. He is a Hutterite who, once he came out, cannot go back to his colony to be with his friends and family there. He has started a support group which he will talk about as well. Kelly couldn't stay with us the whole time, but we did appreciate his perspective. If you wish to listen to his interview, listen to it here.
Oh, and Terry Lo is with us as well.
Topics we cover in our Podcast include;
Kelly's perspective on GSA's and the concerns from the religious community.
Diane's experience dealing with teachers and principles in schools.
A response to if an "anti-bullying" club solves the problem
A response to the parental concern argument.
Their impression on Gordon Dirks
Terry walks through how feasible Bill 10 would work with Caprice. And the logic behind it.
