We just started a GSA at our school and we’ve faced some problems. Although the administration says that they’re fine with it and that there is no prejudice, they have us take down the statistics we’ve posted or the discussions on the bulletin board about Bisexuality when the board of trustees comes. They try to hide us away or limit our mobility, but we’re working through that, and I think we’ll be fine once the club really gets settled.
The day of silence is handled pretty well, although I have to keep explaining to people what it is by writing it on the board, but people don’t cause problems. The teachers are very understanding and don’t require you to speak. The GSA debreifed the day afterwards and we think it went pretty well, although once again the administration didn’t allow us to publicize the event. We’ll get it together better for next year.
