    Lgbt centered schools are a possible good thing. For parents with gay children. For gay parents with children. For a child having homophobic issues.

    The local remedial education has been prone to be none affirming.

    There has been something like that in Portland for a long time. I think technically it's a school for homeless and other high-risk kids. But a disproportionate share of them are teens from a nearby shelter for gay kids kicked out by their parents. Might be all part of the same thing? Not sure.

    According to a story in Rolling Stone last fall (IDK if they named a source) the GW Bush era campaign to shift social services money to churches has the effect of forcing LGBT kids back out on the street, since they aren't welcome in ordinary "shelters" that have become little taxpayer-funded bible camps.

    So, anyway there seems to be a need, even if it might not be the best possible solution.

    I feel like it'd be a target for someone reason. Not cool.

    Yes because gay people are "so" different from everyone else lets have schools for them... I don't think that this is a step forward to be honest...
