Skinner Middle School’s anti-bullying work has seen tremendous results this year — they have had a record low of only 9.5% of students reporting being targeted for bullying. Part of the school’s culture is a vibrant Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA), a group of students who work to ensure a culture of safety and respect. The students of the Skinner GSA recently shared their thoughts on coming out, inclusion and how allies can support all students:
Families, students, educators and allies will be walking together with DPS in the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 16 and all are welcome to join! To walk with the group, meet at the 12th St. entrance of Cheesman Park (1200 Humboldt St., Denver, CO 80218) at 9:15 a.m. and look for the DPS banner, balloons and staff wearing WE BELONG t-shirts!
The parade steps off at 9:30 a.m. from Cheesman Park and will end at Civic Center Park. In addition to the parade, you can also visit the DPS booth located in Youth Alley on Saturday or Sunday to learn more about the different supports that DPS offers our LGBTQ+ community, including GSAs, trainings and more. The booth will be open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.–6 p.m. on Sunday.
