Letters from gay Australian students: How our schools tried to 'fix' us

(By Daniel Piotrowski, News.com.au)

These are the letters that will sicken any fair-minded Australian to their core.

Gay Australians have opened up about the discrimination they faced from teachers, staff and peers at school in a series of heartfelt letters.

Today we publish two of these letters.

The letters were originally shared with Independent NSW State MP Alex Greenwich. They are honest, raw, heartfelt and shockingly revealing of the entrenched discrimination and homophobia which still exists in many schools.

Mr Greenwich is lobbying for the NSW State Government to change its Anti Discrimination Act so private and independent schools cannot expel students on the basis of their sexuality.
