On this first edition of OutCasting, we talk with Mary Jane Karger about the roles of Gay-Straight Alliances in local schools. Mary Jane is the Hudson Valley regional co-chair and a national board member of GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network). Also, we decode what all those letters in LGBTQ actually mean.
LGBTQ issues seen from the rarely heard perspectives of LGBTQ youth and straight allies — not by and for LGBTQ youth, but by LGBTQ youth and straight allies and for anyone who wants to better understand LGBTQ issues — parents, grandparents, kids, relatives, straight, LGBTQ, or whatever!
... in-depth coverage of LGBTQ issues, featuring discussions with highly authoritative experts and people with compelling stories
... working extra hard to bring you commentaries, discussions, and perspectives from our youth participants
... having fun with the Ga[y]me Show, extra commentaries, and other behind-the scenes stuff
