As bigots protest

Hundreds support LGBT students

The first day of school can be nervewracking. For the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students who attend the Harvey Milk School in New York City, a right-wing demonstration threatened to make the day even harder. However, 250 supporters--outnumbering the right wingers--cheered, encouraged and defended the students as they entered in the morning, and again as the students left classes in the afternoon. The demonstration was called by FIERCE, an LGBT youth of color group, and DITCH, a new lesbian group.
