“Facing Intolerance”: McFarland High School GSA hosts photo installation to promote diversity and challenge intolerance 

McFarland High School’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) recently presented “Facing Intolerance,” a photo installation art project. Created in conjunction with the MHS theater department’s production of Moisés Kaufman’s The Laramie Project, “Facing Intolerance” used the images and words of MHS students, staff, and alumni who wanted to share their own experiences with intolerance and prejudice.  The photo installation hung throughout the high school the last week of January, accompanying the production of The Laramie Project January 31-February 2.
