What is 'Time to Thrive' and Who is Terrance Bean?
Time to Thrive was a conference held at the Portland Hilton, February 13th -15th and hosted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which is the largest homosexual lobby group in the country. The conference was sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA), American Counseling Association, Oregon Education Association (OEA), California Teachers Association, California Federation of Teachers, Washington Education Association, Gender Spectrum, National LGBTQ Task Force and more.
The content and format for the Time to Thrive conference looks remarkably like the Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC) held in Seaside with keynote speakers and workshop presenters. It should be noted that one hundred free tickets were given away to minors to attend the Time to Thrive conference.
Tracy Flynn, presenter of two workshops at the Time to Thrive conference which were titled "HRC's Welcoming Schools" and "What do you say to, "That's so gay!" and other teachable moments in PreK-elementary school education", will also be a presenter at the 2015 ASC. The title of Ms. Flynn's workshop at this year's Seaside conference is also "Welcoming Schools" . This is a program designed by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for PreK - 6th grade and has as one of its many goals creating "gender inclusive schools".
Terrance Bean, the 66 year-old co-founder of HRC and who served on its board until recently, seems to have been quietly removed. Apparently, Mr. Bean's arrest and indictment last November on two felony charges of sodomy and a misdemeanor count of sexual abuse of a 15 year old boy doesn't look so good for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. You might be interested to learn that one of the workshops presented at the conference was "Perspective of Young Men Who Have Sex with Men about School-based HIV Prevention Services". The description of the workshop defines young men as "...adolescent men who have sex with men (YMSM) 13-19 years old." This is confusing; does the workshop mean teenage boys in high school and middle school having sex with other teenage boys in high school and middle school? Or does it mean teenage boys in high school or middle school having sex with men Mr. Bean's age?
Evidently, Mr. Bean also has a background in gay porn.
