Anderson Cooper took on anti-LGBT bullying in schools last night, and spoke with GLSEN executive director Eliza Byard, along with Focus on the Family’s Candi Cushman and Rosalind Wiseman, author of “Queen Bees & Wannabees.” The topic: federal legislation which aims to prevent anti-LGBT bullying and discrimination in public K-12 schools.
