THE STORY:

Students at McGuffey High School in Claysville, Washington County, Pennsylvania experienced backlash to their 'Day of Silence' - a group of classmates organized their own "Anti-Gay" day creating an atmosphere of fear and discomfort for LGBTQA students and allies.

One tactic of the students was to wear flannel shirts and ink the phrase "anti-gay" as part of their fear-mongering approach. After talking with community organizers around the region, I am proposing that we take a stand to show our support for LGBTQA students at McGuffey High School and throughout Washington County.

1. Take a photo - in a flannel shirt - with a sign that shows your support for the LGBTQA students at McGuffey. I suggest something like "I support LGBTQ students at McGuffey High School."

2. Post the photo using the hashtag #TakeTheHighRoad

3. Make a donation of $10.00 (or whatever amount is good for you) to support the Gay Straight Alliance of Washington County which is working on the front lines at McGuffey High.
