The Gay and Lesbian Armenian Society of Los Angeles commends Glendale Unified School District Supt. Michael Escalante for his willingness to uphold his students’ First Amendment rights, which were expressed through the Day of Silence event (“Parents blast Day of Silence,” April 25).
We are glad that the Glendale Unified School District and other area school districts support these events that seek to increase awareness of sexual orientation issues.
The Gay and Lesbian Armenian Society of Los Angeles is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to foster acceptance and promote equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We at the society have tried as adults to create the kind of place we didn’t have as children — a place where we can be ourselves without fearing for our safety.
