Atlantan teachers are trying to set up a private school for LGBT students and those from LGBT families in the city.
The school, which will be called Pride School Atlanta, already has a location but organisers are still trying to find funding.
The mission is to provide a safe space for the school’s students while allowing them to be open about who they are. It will take students from ages 3 to 14 years old.
Organisers hope to keep tuition down to £7800 a year per student. The school already has a location in the city, it will be running from a local Presbyterian Church.
The school is planned to open this autumn. Organisers say they have joined the fight for the school because they have seen LGBT students struggle with schoolwork after facing homophobic bullying.
