The Article 8 Alliance based in Massachusetts is reporting the following:
Is this the future? A booklet called "The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century" was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission. The event that day was designed for children and their teachers across Massachusetts, organized by the "Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network" (GLSEN).
Here is a link to the booklet: Little Black Book. Warning! This booklet contains frontal male nudity, extreme profanity and explicit descriptions of male to male sexual activities. This book was available to be picked up at an exhibit table by any student of middle school age and older.
GLSEN and the authors should be investigated for distributing pornography to minors.
The booklet actively promotes gay sexual activities and suggests that abstinence may be safe but it is no fun. Further, risky sexual behaviors are described but the seriousness of these practices is minimized.
If you live in Massachusetts, consider calling the Department of Public Health to complain about pornography being paid for by your tax dollars.
