In Maui, It's Elementary was shown to the high school but only to those students whose parents signed permission slips (28% of the eligible students). I wonder what the poor turnout says to the school administrators?
I Do Exist was offered as an alternative but not used. This news article from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin at least mentions that one of the young gay men in It's Elementary is now post-gay and in I Do Exist.
I think the parents involved made a good showing in that they merely wanted a balanced presentation and said so publicly. No favors disrespect; we do favor a full presentation of the facts.
