LGBTQ history to be taught in Illinois public schools starting next year

“It is my hope that educating students about the important roles LGBTQ individuals have played in our country will help them develop a deeper understanding of history and a more compassionate view of their peers. Schools also will provide positive reinforcement for LGBTQ students by highlighting the important contributions of other LGBTQ individuals," stated co-sponsor of the bill Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago), when the bill was proposed.
