Completely off-topic, and not asking to be friended or anything - but since I'm not a member of fem_rage and can't comment -- great rage! The principal (and principals in general, I've found) do need to be told things like this, and it's great that you're taking the initiative. Rock on! But - very minor quibble - the general rule is to put a space after a comma. :) Anyhow -- I do wish you luck, and hope it spurs the school into rethinking its attitude and taking the appropriate steps!

Heyyy. I'm Fern, I'm from Seattle, you might recognize me from sktothemax. And you like all kinds of nifty things that I enjoy as well (Sleater-Kinney AND The White Stripes, Bitch Mag, Dinosaur Comics, etc. etc. etc.).
Also, I just noticed that you're a member of vaginapagina, and thehotelyorba (which is funny, because in hindsight I bet I voted on your application). And...yes. All of these things indicate that you are pretty damned awesome.
Let's be friends?

heyyyy, i'm sarah, i doubt you remember me, but you replied to one of my comments on queer_rage a while back about kelowna and how it's hard to be out there. i'm just curious if you could tell me more about the town/area.. like is blatant homophobia a common occurrence? is the town full of whacko religious types? it looks like a really lovely place to live but if it's really small minded i'd have to pass.
in case you were wondering, me and my girlfriend want to move to canada in a couple of years as the UK doesn't look like it's going to get gay marriage any time soon. oh, and vancouver island is on our shortlist too, i assuming you will sing its praises from your lj info!
sorry if this is a bit creepy/random/internet stalkerish, but you're the only person on the interwebs i've bumped into who's had experience of the town.
thanks! :)

First, I'm going to friend you back, hooray.

I'll start off by saying Kelowna, and the Okanagan, is a gorgeous area. There's lots of fruit, great skiing/snowboarding/boating on the lake, and it is a fabulous place to raise kids. My mom moved me and my sister from downtown Victoria to Kelowna when I was nine, and in that respect, I was able to have a 'traditional' childhood.

However, Kelowna is painfully conservative. By that, I mean the pride festival has only returned in the past year, and the political riding is one of the ones that voted against gay marriage. My old high school has a GSA now, but that's only been in the last few months. There are a lot of churches, many of which are evangelical.

Myself, I've been out since I was 15. Neither one of my girlfriends in Kelowna held hands with me in public, because of the closemindedness. That said, one of my mother's old colleagues was a lesbian,married with kids, very out about it, and no one at her elementary school [she was a teacher] hassled her.

Honestly, I'd say that Vancouver Island is more gay friendly. It's closer to Vancouver, but you can escape the crowds and hustle better. People here are ridiculously accepting, and the weather's more consistent.

If you flip through my LJ archives, you'll get more of an idea, probably. :)
