PBS states on July 3, 1981, New York Times published a story about a rare disease that was found to be in only gay men. This was called GRID, which stood for Gay Related Immune Deficiency Disorder, or its current name AIDS. AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and GRID was changed to this due to the discovery that it wasn 't only gay men to obtain it. Which makes it even more important that all students from Junior high and up are aware of the risk. This disease is incredibly strong and has no cure, only treatment that can help maintain it. Almost no schools have a sex education program that includes a well developed lesson on the different types of sexual orientation and types of genders. Some of the schools that do cover it won 't talk about it in a positive way. These instructors talk about the negatives like the increase chance of HIV or dating violence. All students deserve help in order to stay mentally and physically safe.
The number of LGBT+ students is rapidly growing and it needs a support system from their family and peers to keep up and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Parents want to help their children be safe and well educated on the world around them. Along with that schools should want what 's best for their students. No one in this world wants to feel excluded from those around them and by including the LGBT+ youth into a well managed support system at school they’ll be able to live better
