Guest Speaker on Bullying Panels
On October 7th, 2010 at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, on November 30, 2010 at Utica College, and again on April 19, 2011 at Fulton County Community College (see photo), I was a member of three panels sponsored by the Office of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson, AIDS Community Resources, the New York Civil Liberties Union, and Pride Along the Mohawk. These panel discussions are aimed at increasing awareness and providing resources for students, parents and teachers about the bullying of LGBTQ students in our schools. Today, LGBT youth are bullied two to three times more often than their heterosexual peers. [For more on the FCCC panel, click here.]
