It's Time to Move Forward.

Even at an all-girls school, I have experienced mostly a male, white, straight education. I have learned zero facts about LGBTQIA+ history in all my years at my school. I was asked if I felt the conversations surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community at my school were productive. To this I say: what conversations? We have not had any large-scale communications about discrimination against this community. My school has more interest in maintaining their "flawless" reputation than in encouraging their students to embrace their identity and stand up for themselves. Individuality is suppressed in the name of "regulations": no colored hair, teachers refusing to use students' identified pronouns, little to no diversity in history classrooms. My school is stuck in the 20th century, and it's time to move forward.
