Anoka-Hennepin Students, Parents Hold Pride Event X390 (SOURCED) | ADVOCATE.COM

A number of religious conservative parents — both Christian and Jewish — in the infamous Anoka-Hennepin School District north of Minneapolis, have demanded that school officials purge mention of homosexuality and add instructional information about so-called ex-gay and ex-trans therapies and “GRID” (Gay Related Immune Deficiency, an archaic term that was given to AIDS but hasn’t been used by the medical establishment since 1984).

According to Andy Birkey, at the Twin Cities Daily Planet, the school’s “neutrality policy” (which is basically a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for the area’s public schools, in which LGBT issues are not to be discussed) is under attack by students who say it creates a hostile learning environment. But the Parents Action League, who released a resolution in support of anti-LGBT policies last week, want the policy to remain in place. In addition they called for the addition of anti-gay information, such as the “success” of “ex-homosexual therapy.”
