As the chair of Fairness West Virginia Institute, the statewide organization dedicated to the fair and equal treatment of all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) West Virginians, I'm very proud of the students at Parkersburg South High School who courageously stood up for their right to form a Gay-Straight Alliance and stood up in the face of school-sanctioned anti-LGBT bullying.
