>Supportive Board Member Working to Help LGBT Students

>Students at Kennewick High School in Washington have asked to get a GSA in place, but were told it wouldn't be well received. A supportive school board member however, is working to get over that hurdle.

"Kids are experiencing rejection for no good reason and I think we have work to do to fix that," said Wendy London, a member of the Kennewick School Board...

London has committed to have monthly meetings with the Vista Youth Center. She says hopefully some work on training and education on Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) related issues for school district staff can be done.
