This video comes from NYU's Apr 25, 2008 "Gender, Schooling and New York City" Education Policy Breakfast.
Kevin Jennings answers a question about what sort of policy could be implemented to counteract the "negative impact of stereotypes" against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered students by their teachers. (transcript below)

Next, we take the nation down into a lower ring of Hell.
Kevin Jennings. What a guy. He’s so full of such good ideas!
Jennings needs to re-read “Animal House” (or at least the parts that apply to him)
because “Some Animals are more equal than others”
Maybe Roman Polanski could be contracted to make a short educational film called “Leave No Child’s Behind.”
Kevin Jennings should be required to take a psych eval, and be committed.
How about religious sensitivity training? So you can appreciate how people of faith feel about such activities.
I would treat it like I did the 0bama video in my class....Oops, the TV isn’t working for some reason!
It’s call gym.
“negative impact of stereotypes”
Sometimes stereotypes become that way by being true. Certainly the militant homosexual lobby hasn’t done itself any favors in the way its members act and speak.
That, and it’s an abomination in the sight of God and by definition unnatural...
How I long for the days when people believed that sewer rats belong only in the sewer.
How about they just keep their preference on jubbly rubbin’ to themselves and not demand that we accept their deviance?
I bet I can get a better course on the playground at recess than any brainwashing the DOE puts out.
Kids know what queers are (male and female)
I think you mean “Animal Farm.” “Animal House” was a good movie though :)
I sincerely doubt that a course can banish stereotypes.
Stereotypes exist because there is a notable degree of accuracy to them. To make a stereotype go away, the affected group has to stop engaging in characteristic behavior.
I can think of a couple of false stereotypes but the vast majority are true.
Jennings went on to say that, “all my experiences as a closet gay just left a bad taste in my mouth!”
Forget it. He's rolling.
that, and my inability to proofread make me look like an idiot here- but I am addicted (because no one else cares about my opinion!)
Was it over then the Germans bombed pearl harbor?
Who is this guy and why should I care?
Oh, thats right. No one else cares..so i won’t. Done.
Obama has some really strange friends.
But it’s OK if they have no training in the subjects they teach.
That ought to dry up lots of enrollments by persons wishing to become teachers.

Held at a high school in Boston.
On Saturday, March 29, 2008 the Gay Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) held its regional conference at English High School in Boston. GLSEN uses taxpayer money to run “gay-straignt alliance” clubs, the “Day of Silence”, and other homosexual activities in schools across the state. The conference is serves as the starting point for its activism over the coming year. Here’s what they’re doing. It’s every parent’s nightmare.
Here’s our report from year’s GLSEN conference - read more here:
Read some of the stuff and it’ll make your hair stand on end. Kevin Jennings defended it.
This is why everyone needs to take their kids out of the government indoctrination camps.
