Mt. Dora HS: Show LGBT Students "It Gets Better"


The students at Mount Dora High School need to know that they have educators in their midst who are supportive of who they are. As of now, all they hear about is a teacher who is fighting for his first amendment right to spew bigotry and hatred towards LGBT people.

If faculty, staff and alumni of the school were to get together and send a message of hope, tolerance and support to the kids in this high school via an It Gets Better video, it could again make Mount Dora High School feel like a safe, hate-free learning environment.

We call on the individual faculty members, staff members and alumni to create an It Gets Better video to show students that while bigotry and hatred exist in the world, things do change for the better.
