Excerpted from The Blaze: The Broward school district in Florida has endorsed what is being called a “groundbreaking” resolution encouraging K-12 students to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History Month this October, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Begun in 1994 by a Missouri high school teacher, according to the Miami Herald, LGBT History Month has been recognized by a wide variety of adult politicians and public figures for years. However it is not often celebrated in classrooms with young children, possibly because the topic is intrinsically sexual.
The Miami Herald continues:
“Administrators, teachers, staff, parents and students are encouraged to take part in LGBT History Month in any way that is most positive and uplifting to their schools and communities,” the [resolution] states. “And to coordinate efforts to highlight exemplary role models from the LGBT community.”
