My Travel Story

by: Matthew Paskey Start Date: Sep 19, 2016 - End Date: Jun 18, 2017
In the summer of 2017, peers and co-leaders of Fossil Ridge High School's Gay-Straight Alliance will embark on an educational journey through the Central and Southern United States. This road trip will emphasize bonding among those travelling, as well as offer a unique opportunity to study the culture that exists in this part of the U.S. as it pertains to the LGBT+ community. Due to a reputation of intolerance in this part of the country, our studies would focus on the topic of tolerance in the South.

With representation from different sexual orientations, genders, ethnicities, interests, religions, and backgrounds present within our group, our passion for an increased understanding of tolerance is driven as a result of this experience.

Our experience on this trip will be heavily documented through photos, videos, as well as writing entries to be compiled upon our return. Ultimately, this experience will take our education to a new level, offering real-world experience that simply cannot be offered in the classroom setting.

Ultimately, we offer a huge thank you to anyone who as taken the time to read about our project and an ever bigger thanks to anyone who is willing to support our education and cause.
