Agree or Disagree: We need more Gay-Straight Alliances in Schools.

I feel this needs a little bit of explanation.

Yesterday, Kent Hehr, a Liberal MLA in Alberta put forward a bill towards the Alberta Legislature. The bill put forth was that if a school requested, there would be a gay-straight alliance.

What is a gay-straight alliance? Glad you asked!

Gay–straight alliances are student-led organizations, found primarily in North American high schools and universities, that are intended to provide a safe and supportive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning youth and their straight allies.

Now, the motion put forth by Kent Hehr yesterday was defeated. You can read the story from Metro News below.

What do you think? Is this something we need more of?
