Today in POSITIVE News for GLBT High-Schoolers

Comes this story from WCAX.com about a sit-in to support student Cole Peterson:

The all day sit-in comes in response to freshman Peterson’s claims that he was beaten up over the weekend by two fellow students for being bi-sexual. “Random students that have attended this event, that I don’t even know who they are, have just come up to me and hugged me and told me that they support me and I just feel really amazing about this,” Peterson said.

The best part of the story is the banner shown about 1:14 into the video from the school principal. Nice to see a school administrator in support of something like this for a change.
