For the anons who were just asking about the dynamics of race and racism:
You can listen to free college lectures from around the country by searching “race and racism” on iTunes U. This way you can learn about anything you can find (there’s a lot!) and not be badgering a PoC to educate you (not their job), or asking me (as a white person, I am NOT an authority figure).
And it’s free!
A new school has opened in Phoenix that’s the first of its kind in Arizona - a high school designated for LGBT students.
Q High is one of only a few schools in the country that are made to cater to LGBT students who, for whatever reason, don’t feel right or safe or respected in previous high schools. Many students who go to these schools have been bullied for their sexuality and are looking for a safe haven.
The school offers classes online during the day while its physical building serves as a youth center for LGBT students, offering resources like “a class on coming out.” 14 students are currently enrolled, with room for 25 total.
“For me personally, it’s about creating a safe space for our youth to feel welcome,” said Q High Program Coordinator Kado Stewart. “We’re offering an alternative to students who do not feel safe at (traditional) schools.”
What do you think of this? Good idea? Bad idea? Neutral idea?
TIME OUT: Arizona is doing something progressive?!?
