hey guys. something really ironic has happened at my school.
Our SAGA group (like a gsa) made a video for the day of silence. It’s set up like an interview, and we talk about being lgbt+ in a school setting, along with explaining (roughly) why the day of silence exists. We put a lot of work into planning & filming this video.
and now we’re not allowed to show it.
The school board has been giving reasons for not allowing it, there was a specific example that could target a teacher. so we edited that part out. they still didn’t allow it. They said that we don’t have permission (faces etc), but the video making is covered by a form signed earlier in the year. there was the argument of “other clubs don’t do this” but they do. I’ve seen numerous videos from clubs that were to get the message of their club out. There are numerous other reasons they gave that our club sponsor wouldn’t go into, but she (our sponsor) says that she doesn’t see them as valid.
i think it’s ridiculous that we’re being silenced on this day.
we’re not giving up on getting this video out, and you can watch it here
