Earlier this summer, Bloomington High School North made national headlines when students there decided to form what they called a Straight Pride Group. The group was reportedly going to offer “specific supports for heterosexual students”. Many saw the group as being anti- LGBTQ. After a public outcry, the group’s faculty sponsor backed out and the group never officially formed. Last week, WFHB’s BloomingOUT hosted a discussion that issue and others with the gay-straight alliance at Bloomington High School North. Hannah Jesseph is a member of the alliance and
Greg Chaffin is the faculty sponsor. We bring you a portion of that conversation now for today’s WFHB
community report. Chaffin begins by discussing the origins of the gay-straight alliance at North.
