"Gay Day" in California schools
Californian schools must celebrate Gay Rights on 22 May each year, according to new legislation.
The California Assembly approved AB 2567 by 43 votes to 26. The official title will be 'Harvey Milk Day' in memory of the work of the late Harvey Milk, San Francisco Supervisor.
All public schools will be required to "conduct suitable commemorative exercises" in commemoration of Milk's work. Randy Thomasson, President of 'Campaign for Children and Families', has said that, "If signed into law, AB 2567 will mean an official day commemorating homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality in California government schools…This will harm children as young as kindergarten."
Only a veto by Governor Schwarzenegger will prevent this legislation from entering the statute books.
