This year's GLSEN Conference: Getting homosexuality into kids' heads.

Big push for upcoming year includes expanding into middle schools, transgenderism, and promoting activism & radical politics

Posted April 9, 2008

On Saturday, March 29, the Gay Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) held its regional conference at English High School in Boston. About 300 people attended, with over 80% of them children -- mostly middle school and high school kids bussed in from all over the state.

The average age of all attendees appeared to be 15. Most of them seemed to be between 14 and 16. Although it cost $70.00 for adults to attend, kids could get in for free or nearly free.  Most of the adults appeared to be homosexual activists, many of them schoolteachers.

Boston English High School, founded in 1821. They never dreamed it would be doing this!

The GLSEN banner hangs over the schools front door welcoming attendees.

There were speeches, performances, and 26 specialized workshops throughout the all-day conference, as well as lots of reading material freely passed out.

The official theme was "Teaching Respect: Embracing Your Voice as a Force for Change." It did include a lot of instruction in activism and propaganda, but the main theme seemed to be establishing homosexual programs in the middle schools and making kids comfortable with embracing a "gay identity" -- more of a psychological strategy than the purely sexual strategies of the past.  Getting kids to used to the concept of transgenderism and cross-dressing was also a big theme.

The keynote speaker was Gunner Scott, a woman with a beard and sideburns who is a major transgender activist and a leader of the Massachusetts Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth (and who was referred to as "he" throughout the day, confusing many kids).

Boston Mayor Tom Menino was also scheduled to speak but never showed up. (He apparently figured out what the publicity would be like!)

The workshops were led by homosexual activist teachers, some students, GLSEN organizers from their national headquarters, and others.

It was sad and heartbreaking to watch many of the kids, said our observers. A lot of them were obviously in need of some real help. Many had multiple piercings, tattoos, and a generally confused demeanor. Others were well-meaning kids who were being drawn into the movement by adults. They had become, as one person observed, “well-trained tellers of the lie.”

What is GLSEN?

The Gay Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) an aggressive national homosexual activist group targeting schoolchildren across the country.  It organizes and maintains homosexual "gay-straight alliance (GSA) clubs in high schools across the country. It uses these clubs not only to attract kids, but as a springboard for launching other homosexual programs in the schools, such as the Day of Silence. In Massachusetts, this activity is publicly funded, with the money coming through GLSEN's prominent membership in the taxpayer-funded Massachusetts Commission on Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth.

At a recent GLSEN conference at Brookline High School, the pornographic Little Black Book – Queer in the 21st Century was handed out to kids, causing a national uproar. In 2000, the infamous Fistgate episode took place at a GLSEN conference. Although these events gained national infamy, GLSEN continues to get state funds.

In the conference program (see link below), GLSEN lays out it mission and goals regarding kids. It clearly describes how they want to normalize various homosexual behaviors in the minds of children as young as pre-school, and compare criticism of such behaviors -- "heterosexism" -- to racism in their minds.


The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network of Boston envisions a future in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

Mission Statement

The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network of Boston strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. We believe that such an atmosphere engenders a positive sense of self, which is the basis of educational achievement and personal growth. Since homophobia and heterosexism undermine a healthy school climate, we work to educate teachers, students and the public at large about the damaging effects these forces have on youth and adults alike. We recognize that forces such as racism and sexism have similarly adverse impacts on communities and we support schools in seeking to redress all such inequities. GLSEN Boston seeks to develop school climates where difference is valued for the positive contribution it makes in creating a more vibrant and diverse community. We welcome as members any and all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or occupation, who are committed to seeing this philosophy realized in preK-12 schools.
