From the Writer

When researching my final paper, I wanted to write about the rights of gay students in response to the recent string of high school suicides. I stumbled upon the events in Boyd County and found that they provided a lively story that coincided with many of the legal issues affecting gay high school students. In writing the paper, I drew some inspiration from articles in legal journals, while maintaining a temporal narrative.
