A R T I C L E:

Omni Publishing Co. announces the release on March 1, 2011, of the DVD "The Last Closet - Combating Homophobia in Schools." The DVD features the presenter Dan Woog, a gay man, who is the varsity soccer coach at Staples High School in Westport, Connecticut.

In a presentation that is both forceful and articulate, Dan Woog makes the case for the invisible victims of bullying in schools today - students who are gay or lesbian or not sure of their sexuality. This group of students is present in all levels of schools from elementary through high school and in every school in America. They often have nowhere to turn to for help. Dan offers ways school administrators and teachers and parents can help alleviate the victimization of these students.

The main problem, Dan points out, is that administrators, teachers and parents often do not know how to respond. He presents a variety of strategies for administrators and teachers that schools can adopt to combat this homophobia.

The most important point that Dan makes is that responding to the needs of gay and lesbian students is consistent with the goal of all educators and that is to inspire each student to learn to the best of his or her abilities. Creating an atmosphere where this is possible is one where ALL students are free to pursue academic goals irrespective of their sexuality.

This compelling DVD should be in every school in the country.

"The Last Closet - Combating Homophobia in Schools" is available on DVD; running time 60 minutes; $80.00 (US). More information: http://www.omni-pub.com .
