This news segment, initially aired Feb 19, 2008, highlights the killing of Lawrence King, the 15-year-old 8th-grader who was killed inside of his middle school because he was gay and gender non-conforming.

I usually don't think of blogs as news sources, but this one lists not only facts but raises serious questions.

Here are other sites for more information: Myspace site. Remembrance site.

For allies, adults and school staff to get involved in making schools safe for all students to learn and for all teachers to teach, there are a few resources:  The Oregon Safe Schools Coalition, the Washington Safe Schools Coalition, the Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network, and I love the ACLU. This is their LGBTQ  site.
