California Makes LGBT History

More good news from California. Gov. Jerry Brown
signed legislation that makes California the first state
in the nation to include the contributions of our gay,
lesbian & transgender Americans in school history
lessons & textbooks. Gil Duran, spokesman for Gov.
Brown stated, "It’s an important step forward for the
state of California. It revises existing law to make sure
people are not excluded from history books. History
should reflect reality." Sen. Mark Leno who penned
the bill said he hoped this will help reduce bullying by
educating young people about the accomplishments
of our LGBT community. This is a game-changer...:)

Today we are making history in California by ensuring that our textbooks and instructional materials no longer exclude the contributions of LGBT Americans. Denying LGBT people their rightful place in history gives our young people an inaccurate and incomplete view of the world around them.

Sen. Mark Leno, State Senator (D-San Francisco)
