A female teacher who identifies as a male is set to open a private school for homosexual and transgender youth in Georgia later this year. The “Pride School of Atlanta” will teach children K-12 beginning in September, and will operate out of a Unitarian Universalist facility in the city. The first of its kind educational institution will cost $13,000 a year in tuition fees.

Founder Christian Zsilavetz, 45, says that she never felt support while teaching as a male in public schools, and decided to found her own school where children could be open about their homosexuality or transgender desires.

“Kids have full permission to be themselves—as well as educators—where there’s no wondering, ‘Is this teacher going to be a person for me to be myself with?’” she told the Associated Press. “This is a place where they can just open up and be the best person they can be.” FULL REPORT
