A high school in San Francisco will be the first in the nation to offer a course on LGBT issues. The Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts will offer the course starting in the fall, and it will concentrate on LGBT history and literature, terminology, and media portrayals.
“I’m excited to teach the class because, in San Francisco, at SOTA, students should be learning these stories; they’re ‘their’ stories,” teacher Lyndsey Schlax said on the school’s Facebook page. “So much is changing in America, and the world, for LGBTQ individuals… I get to teach this history as its [SIC] happening. It can’t get much more exciting than that!!!” [Seventeen]
