PETA is urging the design team of the proposed gay-friendly Chicago public high school to institute a vegetarian-only menu.
If approved by the Chicago Board of Education on Oct. 22, the Social Justice High School Pride Campus would open in 2010. While the Pride Campus would be open to all students, it would focus on creating a safe and affirming for LGBTQ students and their allies.
In a letter to Social Justice High School assistant principal Chad Weiden ( who would serve as the Pride Campus principal ) , PETA's director of media relations Michael McGraw wrote, 'Oppression—regardless of the species or sexual orientation of the victim—is dead wrong. To truly succeed in teaching tolerance and fighting oppression, the Pride Campus needs to keep prejudice out of its classrooms and off its plates.'
