ALTOONA, Iowa -- A conference focused on eliminating bullying against students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning is being held Friday.

Iowa Safe Schools is holding its annual Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth. At the conference they'll talk about the issues relevant to the LGBTQ community and encourage diversity in communities.

The conference starts Friday morning at the Prairie Meadows Event Center in Altoona.

One of this year's speakers, Fred Rosser, is better known by his ring name -- Darren Young. He was the first WWE wrestler to come out as gay.

More than 1,000 people from over 100 Iowa communities attended last year's meeting.

      You mean that dimwit whose daughter shot her fool mouth off about how their business was bigoted?

        Ah, of course, POLISH, you’re one of that gigantic population of Christian victims. I should have known.

        It’s ALWAYS someone else’ fault with you victims, isn’t it?

      I tend to agree with your position, but I wonder if this is just a case of sloppy writing? Certainly, a conference can focus its discussions about the group it was intended to talk about, but I tend to doubt that they were as narrowly focused on the bullying issue as the headline might lead one to believe.

    Or we can just do like our Gov. Lil Hitler does and replace people that don’t agree with him with others that are his puppets….
