A wave of anti-LGBTQ laws for schools in red states has Biden administration weighing a response

Anti-gay laws in schoolsIt was late in the fall semester a few years ago when the yearbook staff of a suburban Houston high school finished putting together the project, including a full-page feature on the high school's Pride club, a support group for LGBTQ students.

The 2018-19 yearbook made its way to the administration for final review, which was when the principal saw the addition and made a controversial decision: parents of every student on that page would need to sign a permission slip.

The slips, sent to parents without students’ consent and for no other school club, caused an uproar, recalled Cameron Samuels, a club member and then a freshman.

Samuels, who uses gender-neutral pronouns, was not in any photos on the page and was spared that trauma. But they saw how it shook and disturbed some classmates, they said.
