Minnesota students and teachers sound alarm bells as school board approves anti-LGBTQ+ presentation

A Minnesota school board has said it will hear a presentation from “the other side” after a talk was given in January by OutFront Minnesota, an LGBTQ+ advocacy group.

At a board meeting for the Becker School District earlier this month, it was confirmed that a second presentation would be made on March 14 by the Minnesota Child Protection League (MNCPL), an organization formed by established anti-LGBT activists, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“…The response from the kids is they were glad to have [OutFront], but the response from the school board then was right away, they needed to hear the other side of this,” Becker High School social studies teacher and Gay Straight Alliance advisor Heather Abrahamson told the St. Cloud Times. “I don’t understand how you could think there’s another side to human rights, but they claim that there is.”
