The club is called Gay, Lesbian and Everybody Else, or GLEE. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the group at Daggett Middle School on Fort Worth's South Side is one of a handful of gay-straight organizations that have formed on Fort Worth school campuses.
Daggett seventh-grade social studies teacher Lisa Earley is GLEE's campus sponsor. She says students "wanted a place where they felt safe."
Fort Worth school district guidance and counseling director Kathryn Everest says about seven Gay-Straight Alliance groups have formed at district high schools.
But Earley says middle school can be difficult for students as their sexualities emerge and they begin to question themselves.
