Bullied( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film tells the story of Jamie Nabozny, a gay student who endured relentless bullying in both middle and high school despite seeking help from school administrators. Jamie fought back, not with his fists but in a courtroom. His historic federal case established that gay and lesbian students have a constitutional right to be free from harassment and bullying. Why is a film on anti-gay bullying necessary? Lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) are still subject to physical and verbal harassment or isolation, educators are wary of raising issues relating to sexual orientation or gender identity because the subject is seen as politically or religiously charged. Until school personnel understand that, unless all students feel safe, the school is not providing the best environment in which to learn, they risk sending the message that some bullying is acceptable
