LA Kindergarten Students Show Their ‘True Colors’

by The Next Family June 13, 2013


A kindergarten class at the Olympic Primary Center in the Los Angeles Unified School District performed Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” using American Sign Language and a plethora of brightly colored sashes, according to The Raw Story.

“Oh. My. God. Conservatives were actually right on this one,” wrote Arturo Avina on his blog. “The ‘gay agenda’ is infiltrating our public schools! And you know what? It’s absolutely fabulous.”

According to Avina, the lesson learned through the students demonstration, complete with mirrors facing the audience that read “You Are Good,” and “You Are Perfect,” is to “love yourself, and always show love, kindness, and respect towards others no matter who they are,” Avina wrote. “Regardless of ethnicity, sex, gender, religious creed, or sexual orientation, EVERYONE is worthy of love.”

While Avina said he realizes some may find the demonstration offensive, he finds it “breathtakingly beautiful.”

Here is the video Avina uploaded on June 6, 2013.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
