Queers Drop Banners in Opposition to HB1727

Today, the education subcommittee in the Virginia General Assembly approved another hateful piece of legislation against the queer community (HB 1727 by a 5-3 vote), this time targeting queer youth. The intent of the legislation is clear: to deny queer youth access to desperately needed support groups in public schools such as Gay Straight Alliances (GSA's) by requiring parental consent to attend said support meetings.
