    • Judith and Imelda,

      I really enjoyed your post because I think that being an ally for the LGBTQ+ community is extremely important. One side that I think you need to address is the religious aspect. I know people who would never say anything bad about a person who identified as LGBTQ+, but who are very uncomfortable with the subject due to a religious objection. Middle schoolers are unlikely to actually cite their religious beliefs or the religious beliefs of their family as the reason that they are bullying or being unkind to an LGBTQ+ youth, but it maybe an underlying factor. I would suggest adding something to your proposed presentation about reconciling certain religious faiths and caring for and supporting LGBTQ+ people. I might cite powerful figures from major religions who have spoken out positively on the subject, but there are many other options too.

      But again, really nice work and clear layout of your ideas!
      Gwen

    • Thank you for your taking your time to leave us a comment. One of our action of changes was to do a Middle School presentation and we successfully finished one on Tuesday and we have 2 more left. During our presentation we talked about GSA’s and how they could create one. We gave them information about the GSA that we have in our Highschool. Allies can support the LGBTQ+ community by attending a GSA. Our school GSA is open to EVERYONE and when an ally walks in it shows their support towards the LGBTQ+ community. If you would like to see more of our actions and what we’ve accomplished you can follow us on Instagram @everythingrainbowoakland_. We would really appreciate it! – Imelda.

  • Hey Mr. Ogaz thank you for taking the time out of your own personal life to comment on my post. Sorry I wasn’t very explicit I tried talking about the celebrations that I went to but I think it all got messed up. The 2 main focuses I wanted to point out were the 5 de Mayo celebrations and The Day Of The Dead celebrations. Yes I have gone to the l…Read More
