Recent social media posts from Delsea Regional High School, a government school in Franklinville, New Jersey, revealed that the school was celebrating pride month by pushing students to take a variety of actions to signal their support for the LGBT movement.

In a TikTok video posted by @myteacherface, a number of different ways that the school is celebrating pride month. The video begins with an activities list for the Week of June 7th, which includes a direction to “Sign the ally banner in the front lobby.”

Students were also encouraged to wear a pride ribbon, the colors of the rainbow, a pride lanyard and mask, and a t-shirt that was sold by the Equity Committee and the Gay-Straight Alliance according to a Facebook post. 

Staff members are shown celebrating pride month at the school, with some standing in front of the “proud ally” banner and another standing in front of a modified pride flag that includes a design from the transgender flag. To the left of the flag are smaller flags that represent bisexuals, lesbians, pansexuals, asexuals, and others. 

Delsea Regional High School’s library also promoted several pro-LGBT books on their website under the category “New reads in the media center,” including one book entitled “Beyond the Gender Binary,” and another called “Rainbow Revolutionaries.” The library also highlighted a book entitled “Felix Ever After,” about an individual who is “black, queer, and transgender” who “comes up with a plan for revenge” after he finds that an anonymous student was “publicly posting Felix’s deadname alongside images of him before he transitioned.”

Delsea Regional High School’s library also advertised a book called “High Five for Glenn Burke,” which focuses on “sixth grader Silas Walker” as he takes “his own first baby step to coming out as gay.”
