LGBTQ Students and School Struggles

Mckenzie Keblen, Reporter

Students in Delaware are coming out of the closet and finding support in people who understand and accept them for who they are. A lot of them were bullied, but fortunately for some, it eventually stopped because they got the support they needed or moved away so they didn’t get bullied. Unfortunately, a lot of suicides are from the LGBTQ community because of all the name-calling, taunts, and threats, some of the threats being death threats. It is very unfortunate, but some schools in Delaware have started a GSA, which stands for Gay-Straight Alliance and multiple people have gone to attend them, Cab Calloway has a GSA and so does DMA. So remember, people do support you and you shouldn’t give up, even if it does seem hopeless. Stay strong!
