GLSEN LGBTQ+ History FlashcardsGLSEN
Did you know that the precedent for Brown v. The Board of Education was set by a case argued by a queer African-American lawyer? Their name was Dr. Rev. Pauli Murray.
Have you ever heard of Stone Butch Blues, the 1993 book by Leslie Feinberg, a queer anti-racist activist?
Are you familiar with Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, the first openly transgender White House staffer?
You can learn about these trailblazers and more with GLSEN's new LGBTQ History Cards.
GLSEN’s LGBTQ+ History Cards feature icons and events from the LGBTQ+ community in contemporary history. Research shows that inclusive curriculum is a critical part of fostering safe and affirming learning environments for all students. We hope this deck allows students to see themselves reflected in the stories of influential LGBTQ+ leaders and events that are too often erased in history curriculum.
