CNN.com - First public gay high school to open in NYC - Jul. 28, 2003

Just from reading the article, it seems that Bloomberg's emphasis is on the need to create a safe, open environment for gays, bisexuals, and transgender students. However, all-out segregation is awfully extreme. Why not opt to create a gay-friendly school instead, or better yet, actually try to produce schools where intolerance wouldn't be accepted?

At any rate, it seems that any argument in favor of a school like this could've been applied to any argument for segregated schools pre-1954, replacing the word "gay" for "colored."
