Nicole Marshall

October 7, 2003

     In a time when homosexuality has become part of mainstream culture and media, it seems that integration of straight and gay society would lead to tolerance and acceptance, apparently it's not.     It seems odd to me that an all gay, lesbian, and bisexual high school has rec...
