Part two of our tribute to Betsy Parsons. We spoke with colleagues and students of Betsy about her ground-breaking work establishing a supportive and nurturing environment for LGBTQ+ students in public schools across the state of Maine. Betsy played a key leading role over two decades in establishing 70 Gay-Straight-Trans Alliances in high schools.
Betsy was a public school teacher in Portland for 30 years and a pioneer founder of the group GLSEN. Betsy’s sisters, Susan and Sarah, joined the show to talk about this remarkable woman who passed away on September 5th, 2019.
