Do you have any suggestions on this topic?

I like how you qualify your question with "openly" gay. Because non-heteronormative sex has probably existed for years, but the ability to openly discuss it varies from culture to culture and time period to time period.

It would seem that more and more K-12 schools practice a more tolerant approach to discussions around gender/sex/sexuality. It would be interesting to see the numbers, if they exist. But I've been teaching at a K-12 school for one year (after several years as a graduate student teaching at a well-known public university), and the school does a lot to encourage tolerance. Granted, I live in a very progressive-oriented area and the school goes to great lengths to project diversity in many respects.

Where do you live then? Where is this utopian school?

It's easier I think to be openly gay for new generations: no taboos, nobody cares... But it's partially true. Not in all the countries.

It's just the era that people are raised in. Back in the 40's/50's/60's, homosexuality was seen as extremely taboo and was never a topic people felt comfortable to talk about openly. Gay people had to basically keep it to themselves.

As time went on, people are being raised in more 'tolerable' environments. Religion is dying down a bit (which played a huge role on how people viewed others who they perceived to be different), people are getting more educated, schools and organizations are embracing different sexualities and diversity, and there's less pressure for people to conform to the 'norm'.

In other words, people just don't give a s*** anymore and aren't scared of being their true selves Smiley
