The Gay/Straight Alliance, a gay and lesbian high school club formed at a downtown campus here, has taken pride in helping youths struggling with their sexual identity to support each other. "Going to high school when you are gay or lesbian is a miserable, lonely experience," said 17-year-old Kelli Peterson, who founded the club at East High School in December. "I know, I've been beat up twice." But on Tuesday, the Salt Lake City Board of Education voted to squash the club.
