Free screening of Bullied at H.S., May 18th, 7 PM

Published May 11, 2012 by justicewg

“Every day, thousands of gay and lesbian students are verbally and physically harassed in schools. Bullied centers on the powerful story of Jamie Nabozny, a gay teenage boy, tormented for years by classmates in his middle and high schools. Jamie fought back, not with his fists but in a courtroom. His historic federal case established that gay and lesbian students have a constitutional right to be free from harassment and bullying. ” – from the IMDB.

(I incorrectly listed this for a short time as the 2012 movie “Bully”, which is currently in theaters. The movie to be shown is the 2010 “Bullied”, a different movie.)

Discussion of the documentary and the issues facing Grandview Heights students will follow the 40 minute movie. Presented by Equality Ohio and Safe Schools for Grandview. Enter the H.S. building at the 3rd st entrance and follow the signs.

  • Hello, I was one of the folks at the meeting that started it all over again on March 13. Thanks for this correction. This movie is from “Teaching Tolerance”, a project of the renowned Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
