A Tennessee family has started a petition calling StudentsFirst to retract a supporter of Tennessee's "Don't Say Gay" bill, which stated that teachers should not be able to talk about any type of sexuality that isn't, "related to natural human reproduction." GLAAD is calling upon allies and members of the LGBT community to sign the petition, and bring awareness to the anti-LGBT sentiments and legislation that Ragan has openly defended.
Students from the Hetrick-Martin Institute shared their thoughts on the use of anti-gay slurs with GLAAD, after bisexual rapper Azaelia Banks used the word fa**ot on Twitter, then defended her use of it by saying she meant 'someone who acts like a woman.'
