Pride School proudly opens its doors

Af­ter two years of plan­ning, Pride School At­lanta opened its doors at the Uni­tar­ian Univer­sal­ist Con­gre­ga­tion of At­lanta in July.

The K-12 non­profit school for LGBT ed­u­ca­tors, stu­dents and fam­i­lies, is the brain­child of trans­gen­der ed­u­ca­tor Chris­tian Zsilavetz.

“There’s a dif­fer­ence between be­ing openly af­firm­ing and act­ing as if ev­ery­body has a great time with your kid be­ing gay or gen­der di­verse. We know that ev­ery par­ent strug­gles. All of our par­ents have strug­gled. And if you hang out with peo­ple who get it, then you’ll get it faster,” Zsilavetz said. “When you walk in, there’s noth­ing in there that would typ­i­cally push out folks, es­pe­cially those in the LGBT com­mu­nity.”
