Pride School Atlanta is the first LGBTQ+ affirming school in the South. Spearheaded by Christian Zsilavetz, an openly transgender educator, it will join just a handful of such schools in the U.S. specifically designed as safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth.
The website NewNowNext, an online news and entertainment feature of the Logo TV network, interviewed Pride School Atlanta Co-Founder and Director , Christian Zsilavetz.
“We recognize the need for LGBT-affirming and diversity-affirming education for many youth,” Zsilavetz explains. “Many parents of children who are not gender conforming or come from an LGBT family are happy with their kids’ preschool, but are already asking themselves, ’But what about Kindergarten?.’ Regardless how youth identify or express themselves, they are welcome here. Everyone here has the right to use whatever restroom or pronoun or other self-identifier they prefer.”
