October LGBTQ History Month Resources
Learning an LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum can help us better understand our world and our differences. For LGBTQ students in particular, it can mean feeling safer at school and hearing homophobic and transphobic remarks less frequently, according to GLSEN research. Please take a look at the great GLSEN resources here, from an interactive timeline and coloring book to many other classroom resources!
