Opening a new era in segregation only liberals could love, Atlanta may soon have a new private school offering pre-K through eighth grade classes specifically for the children of lesbians and gays.
Pride School Atlanta is raising money to start “a growing community of LGBTQQIA educators, students, families & friends,” according to its website. The school is planning to start classes for the 2015-16 school year.
(For those interested, the unweildy acronym stands for “Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Transgendered/Queer/Questioning/Intersexed/Ally.”)
WXIA-TV reported earlier this month that the school has secured a location, but still needs more funding.
“I want a place where queer and trans families can bring their kids and not have to worry about being the token lesbian family or the token gay family,” said Christian Zsilavetz.
The married father of two says he will not stop until Pride School Atlanta is a reality.
The school’s website contains its mission statement:
To provide LGBTQQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex, allies) teachers, students and families a safe and fun learning environment, free of homophobia and transphobia- a place that honors their identities so they can be themselves, find themselves, and find friends and mentors who can help them navigate the challenges of life and education.
Zsilavetz and educator Kara Vona are trying to make the school “an intentional safe space for kids for youth who want to learn and not have to worry about homophobic remarks every day,” said Zsilavetz.
Vona is a married heterosexual mother of a 5-month-old girl. She has been an educator for 15 years.
In the group’s video, parents brought their young children to hear about gay “lost and found” kids living on the street, “cutting,” and drug and alcohol abuse.
Clearly, these kids would rather be playing with their toys. Sending a 4-year-old to “gay pre-K” is more indoctrination than daycare.
And with annual tuition of $12,000 per student, it will cost parents a whole lot of spending cash for this “homophobia-free” education. Maybe they’ll throw in the homemade T-shirt for free.
