Thursday on Your Call: Have things gotten better for LGBT youth?

On the next Your Call, we'll talk to Ron Schmidt, author of Once Removed, about his journey from life as a closeted gay student in Catholic schools, to marriage and single-parenting, through alcoholism and psychotherapy, to working as a teacher in CA public schools and starting organizations to support LGBT youth. Are schools safer for queer students and families today? Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What's the best way to help LGBT youth feel safe and supported? It's Your Call with guest host, Angie Coiro, and you.

Guests:
Ron Schmidt, founder of South Bay chapter of the Bay Area Network of Gay and Lesbian Educators (BANGLE), and author of Once Removed: A Story of Love, Loss and a Cause Championed

Jill Marcellus, director of the Make It Better Project with the Gay-Straight Alliance
