(Daily Caller) An LGBT organization awarded 50 school districts nationwide a $10,000 grant to promote gender ideology and support “Gender Sexuality Alliance” (GSA) clubs, according to a press release from the “It Gets Better Project.”
The “It Gets Better Project” provided grants to 50 schools nationwide that submitted project proposals, according to the group’s press release. The organization said the grants were created via customer donations from American Eagle customers during Pride Month 2021.
Examples of projects include creating a “gender-affirming closet” at school to “help trans students access clothing that fits their true selves,” and funding the remodeling of “single-gender lavatories” to “gender-neutral bathrooms.”
Parents Defending Education (PDE), a concerned parent organization, highlighted several examples of schools — some in traditionally conservative areas — that spent the money on creating LGBT murals or videos on pronouns using the funds.
Indiana-based Carmel High School plans to create “community-wide Pride events,” according to the “It Gets Better Project” announcement. Carmel High School operates a GSA club, according to documents obtained by PDE, which is sponsoring a fundraiser on GoFundMe to help a transgender student run away from home.
“Hello, we are the CHS Gender Sexuality Alliance and we are fundraising on behalf of a Carmel High School student who needs to raise money to get out of an abusive household,” the GoFundMe reads. “He cannot fundraise for himself because if his mom caught him trying to raise this money himself his situation would get exponentially worse.”
LGBT groups commonly refer to parents who refuse to affirm a child’s transgender identity as “abusive,” according to countless forums, articles, and reports.
Maine-based Cape Elizabeth High School received $10,000 to create a “film that will educate teachers and students how to be more inclusive and use proper pronouns,” according to a press release from the school. Student Saga Hart, a rising junior, is tasked with creating the video.
Louisiana-based, Haynes Academy, similarly vowed to create and fund an “LGBTQ+-inclusive training for students and faculty,” using the grant funds.
Grand Island Senior High School, in Nebraska, vowed to create a “mural to represent all identities in the LGBTQ+ community.” The same school district admits on its website to using controversial surveys that often ask about students’ gender and sexual experiences. Grand Island Public Schools spends $52,000 annually to fund Panorama surveys, according to Parents Defending Education.
