Homophobia and Bullying in High Schools
Rebecca Haskell and Brian Burtch, authors of Get That Freak: Homophobia and Transphobia in High Schools, have done a slew of TV and radio appearances this past week. With homophobia, transphobia, the violence of bullying and the tragic suicides that have resulted from bullying becoming increasingly common in the mainstream media, we are thankful that we have such intelligent and eloquent people like Brian and Rebecca.
