It's hard to be a teenager. Teens face all sorts of pressures from their parents, their friends, and their peers, as well as pressure from themselves to discover who they are, especially when people in their lives may not always be supportive. Young adults coming to terms with their own sexuality often feel like they are the only one experiencing such feelings. They feel like no one could possibly understand the complex emotions that they are expressing. It is critical to a young person's healthy development to have a strong support system they can turn to when life becomes complicated or they deal with complex situations and emotions. An organization exists to help teens come to terms with their own sexuality, the Gay Straight Alliance, and this petition is to start a chapter locally at Yukon High School in the community of Yukon, OK. It is in this organization that students, no matter what their own sexuality, can come together to talk about who they are, in the community of their own peers. Heterosexual students can be vital allies for LGBTQIA+ students who may experience harassment and bullying from other students in school. The support of these such allies may be the key to decreasing the high rates of depression and suicide for LGBTQIA+ students. Join us in creating a community of support, encouragement, friendship, and love for all students at Yukon High School. Sign the petition to start a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) Club today.
