Huffington Post reports:

A bisexual middle school student has become something of an LGBT celebrity in Florida this week, after her attempt to start a Gay-Straight Alliance club at her school became a countywide controversy.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, eighth-grader Bayli Silberstein, an openly bisexual 14-year-old, has been working to get a GSA at Carver Middle School since last year, and she now has the backing of the ACLU and many in her community.

Silberstein said she is hoping the club will help support LGBT students who feel bullied because of their sexual identity at Carver, according to Florida-based broadcaster WFTV.
