>War on GLSEN: Focus on the Family Attacks GLSEN Holiday Fundraiser
>GLSEN is the beneficiary of a performance Tuesday of the upcoming Off Broadway show Santa Claus is Coming Out as a fundraiser to help support our programs that work to make schools safe for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
Focus on the Family is not happy:
“Yet more evidence revealing the dark side of GLSEN–the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network—has surfaced. … At issue this time is a GLSEN fundraiser featuring a theatrical play called Santa Claus is Coming Out!“
Please join us if you’re able to make it to New York City on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, you can show your support for GLSEN by voting in the Chase Community Giving campaign on Facebook. Top 100 charities get $25K.
As an aside, Focus on the Family has a tag counter on their blog. “GLSEN” is tagged more times than “President Obama” and “religious freedom.” Things that make you go … hmmm.
