Candi Cushman Decries The Gay Monopoly On The Anti-Bully Biz: VIDEO

Picture 3
AFTER THE JUMP, see a portion of the speech delivered by Focus On The Family's Candi Cushman yesterday at CPAC. At first glance, she appears to be saying that GLSEN is a bunch of depraved leftists bent on mind control. But if you translate the remarks out of homophobese, what she's actually saying might be something like: Hey, bullying is a problem in our schools, and it's a shame we've ceded all responsibility to solving it to groups like GLSEN. Maybe we could try to help out, too? Is that what she's saying? I hope so.

GLSEN Anti-Hate PSAs to Be Featured at Super Bowl: VIDEO

Hill

Back in May I posted about GLSEN's 'Think Before You Speak' campaign. Today, it was announced that the PSAs will be featured at the Super Bowl:

The videos will be strategically placed on a screen at the entrance of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.,  to be viewed by the 150,000 Super Bowl ticket holders on Feb. 5. In its newest ad, GLSEN, GLSEN,  the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, has garnered cooperation from the NBA and Phoenix Suns star Grant Hill. The NBA is the first professional sports league to address antigay language among teens.

The campaign — Think Before You Speak – was created by Grazie Media and funded by GLSEN, whose mission it is to ensure safe schools for all students. Launched in 2009, the PSAs coincide with national concern about homophobia and school bullying and have received accolades from the Ad Council.

Check out the Grant Hill PSA, AFTER THE JUMP...

Education Secretary Arne Duncan Marks First National Gay-Straight Alliance Day with Anti-Bullying Message: VIDEO

Duncan

Obama's Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has posted a video on the White House blog marking the first annual Gay-Straight Alliance Day, which is today.

Says Duncan, in part: "When students are harassed or bullied, it directly affects their work in the classroom, their aspirations for the future, and their desire to stay in school. Gay-Straight Alliances and similar student groups play an important role in creating welcoming, affirming, and respectful schools and colleges – safe places where learning can happen and students flourish. This work is absolutely essential. GSAs are a proven tool for creating welcoming school climates and helping students stay in school."

The national GSA Day is a project of the Iowa Pride Network. Said Ryan Roemerman, IPN Executive Director: “Over the years other states were contacting us asking how they could replicate the event, so we decided to coordinate on a national level. The response from partnering state and national organizations has been extraordinary.”
