Jun 12 - New Jersey to require schools to teach LGBT history

WOODLAND, N.J. – New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness.

Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised to promote equality for gay and transgender people during his campaign, signed the bill Thursday. Among those celebrating the news was Jaime Bruesehoff of Vernon, whose 12-year-old transgender child, Rebekah, spoke in support of the bill in Trenton in December.

“This bill is so important for our young people,” Bruesehoff said. “They need to see examples of themselves in the history being taught and in classes they are going to each day. We know representation matters.

“By learning about LGBTQ people who have made amazing contributions to their country, they are seeing possibilities for themselves and hope for the future,” she said.

Under the measure, public schools must include lessons about the political, economic and social contributions of individuals who are gay and transgender, starting in the 2020-21 school year. The bill also requires teaching about contributions of people who are disabled.

The law does not apply to private schools.

Leaders of civil rights and advocacy groups said the law will give students a fuller history of the United States, promote understanding and help children feel included in school.

“Our youth deserve to see how diverse American history truly is – and how they can be a part of it one day, too,” said Christian Fuscarino, executive director of the advocacy group Garden State Equality.

Concerns about bullying, parents' rights

Conservative organizations have opposed proposals to teach gay and transgender history, saying such requirements take away power from parents and may encourage kids to question their s*xuality.


Len Deo, president of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, said he opposed the bill because it infringed on parents’ rights.

“We believe it further erodes the right of parents to discuss this sensitive issue with their children, if in fact schools are going to be promoting and making the claim that this particular person was an LGBTQ member,” he said.


Deo said individuals should be included in lessons based on achievements without discussion of s*xual orientation. He noted that New Jersey already has what many education experts consider the strongest anti-bullying law in the country.

Despite the 2011 anti-bullying law, many students in New Jersey still say they feel harassed, targeted and unsupported at school because of their s*xual orientation or the way they express their gender, according to findings of a survey released last month by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN.

By teaching about lesbian, gay, transgender and bis*xual communities in schools, students will feel more connected, which will help their mental health and ability to learn, said Kathryn Dixon, Northern New Jersey policy coordinator for GLSEN.

“It fosters respect and connectivity and develops a culture and climate where everyone feels safe,” she said.

The lessons shouldn’t be confined to the history of the gay rights movement, Dixon added. Rather, schools should also include everyday examples of LGBT individuals and families across subjects.

New Jersey’s inclusive agenda

The New Jersey law was modeled after one that took effect in California in 2012. It’s one of a several measures that the Murphy administration has backed or approved for LGBT rights.

In September, New Jersey issued guidance to schools that were designed to promote transgender-friendly policies on the use of names and pronouns, participation in activities, use of facilities and student records.

One of 11 states with similar policies, New Jersey's isconsidered the most progressive because it tellsschools that gender identity should rest with the student and that parents don't need to be notified.

On Feb. 1, a law went into effect that lets transgender residents more easily change the gender on their birth certificates while also adding a third, gender-neutral option.

If someone s*xuality prevented them from holding positions in a historical context, it's actually no different than someones s*x or race being the prohibitive determinant.

Harvey Milk is an important figure both for what he did, and how hate for his s*xuality brought about his death... and I take zero issue with my sons learning about him.

With his second novel, Giovanni’s Room, he courted controversy because of its explicit depictions of homos*xuality, prompting him to first publish it abroad.

Baldwin also expressed ‘impatience’ with the word ‘gay,’ suggesting the term answered a false argument that queer people had to prove their humanity.

why would socialists want children to understand money? Oh no they want math scores real low it makes them easier to control. They will however hyper s*xualize your child and let them decide their own gender and if you dont agree as the parent they will be taken away. All this coming soon to a liberal sh*t hole near you!

Odd take. Why would learning about certain figures in history make a child gay? I've always wondered about you agenda folks, as no agenda could ever make me stop wanting some pu**y.

Is it that you've found yourself with an erection from something you saw on TV, and were outraged by it?

I remember growing up in bama when that Ellen episode dropped and bama was like "You can go watch that sh*t somewhere else but we ain't playing that sh*t in this dojo" now it seems like you can't get away from it even if you wanted to

You're straight up telling me that had you learned about prominent gay figures in school, there's a strong possibility you'd be enjoying prime p*nis right now... yes?

What if I told you that there was a man who's (arguably) responsible for the Allied Powers winning WWII, who also invented the modern computer, but his own government chemically castrated him because he was gay... which caused his suicide 2 years later?

Learning about that is going to make you gay, son?

u see what this conversation can bring?
instant hostility....that's why homos*xuality is taboo....
ur trollin question can lead to some other sh*t if it's real life...now kids will be f*ghting over anything, this sh*t will promote violence and other sh*t....
u seem to be enjoying typing abut another man enjoyng p*nis...idk if u would say that sh*t in person tho...actually i know u wouldn't....that's the end of that...
