Hello all, today is the Holocaust Day of Remembrance. As most of you probably know already, homosexuals were targeted by Nazis as well as Jews, the mentally and physically handicapped, and anyone who did not fit his idea of the "perfect race". Homosexual men had to wear pink triangles for identification, and lesbian were often put with the "anti-social" group whom wore black triangles. Decades later, sexual minorities have taken these once demeaning symbols and turned them into symbols of pride. Please keep all these victims of the Holocaust in your mind today, and forever.
Hello all!! It's the start of our second semester of clubs at MHS, and I would like to have us all use this site more often to get more information out to you all. Instead of just posting events/holidays and their importance, I would like to start posting about more current events on the discussion page. I want to start off this new implementation by talking about Jewyles Gutierrez from Herecules. She is the transgender teen that we talked about in club today who is facing charges for standing up against bullies at her school. She had faced a lot of harassment and fought back against her aggressors physically. She is now being pressed with battery charges from the bully she fought back against. The following in a news article about her case, with video of Jewyles fighting back. Keep Jewyles in your thoughts, and I will be sure to inform you all when an update on her case comes out.
