    This video, sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Teachers Network, features interviews with young gay men and lesbians who discuss how homophobic attitudes of not only fellow students but also their adult teachers negatively affects their school work. These articulate young people also comment on their own feelings about their sexual orientation, their ‘coming out' experiences, the importance of being ‘out' to friends and family, and the need for a gay and lesbian community. Their commentary is supplemented by interviews with doctors and psychologists who underline the need for sensitivity training of teachers and other adults who work with gay and lesbian youth.
