Today's Diversity Club LGBTQ Ally Week Statistic comes from a Human Rights Campaign survey of over 10,000 LGBTQ teens.  The survey showed that 9 out of 10 LGBTQ teens say they are out to their close friends, and roughly 64% say they are out to their classmates.  Although it's GREAT that two thirds of teens can be their true self at school, there is still one third who hide who they are.  Being an ally helps move those numbers in the right direction!  Know the facts....be the change!
