Voice of America news:US Ad Campaign Teaches Students to be Word-Wise about Sexual Orientation
A recent survey of more than 6,000 middle and high school students in the United States found that a majority of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students surveyed said they experienced harassment at school in the past year.
Often, harassment comes in homophobic remarks, which is why The Ad Council of America has teamed up with GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network to try and change students’ vocabulary, or at least make them more conscious of it.
