The WHS Diversity Club/GSA is celebrating National LGBTQ Ally (pronounced AL-eye) Week this week. Please take some time to read the signs hanging in the halls with some personal reasons why being or having an ally is important. Diversity Club will also be sharing a daily statistic, because part of being a good ally is simply educating yourself. Today's statistic is from The Human Rights Campain’s report, Growing Up LGBT in America, which is a survey of more than 10,000 LGBT-identified youth ages 13-17. This survey showed that 4/10 youth feel that the community they live in is not accepting of LGBTQ people. Ally Week is about making sure no one feels like that in our WHS community. Know the facts...Be the change!
