Texas Elementary Schoolers Told To Keep Pride Week ‘Community Circles’ ‘Confidential’

Five-year-old students were told to keep conversations about LGBT topics “confidential,” sparking backlash online about whether parents were informed about the school’s agenda.

Austin Independent School District (AISD) in Texas is slated to celebrate Pride Week in all public school buildings from March 21-26. Each day of the week has a specific Pride celebration theme, according to the school’s website. Students and staff can collect “Pride and Ally stickers, posters, flags, pronoun buttons and more” from their school’s front office.
