According to a recent national poll, approximately 5% of America's high school students (3 to 4 million students) identify themselves as lesbian or gay. "Coming out", or announcing one’s sexual orientation and identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), can be an uncomfortable process for everyone—faculty, straight students and of course for the LGBT students themselves. This sensitive, informative video offers revealing portraits of real LGBT kids who have come out in schools across the country, as well as their straight allies and their teachers who have dealt with this issue. The program focuses on the psychological and legal issues of bullying and sexual harassment and stresses the importance of creating a safe, tolerant environment for all students, regardless of one’s own personal beliefs or feelings.
