Did you know that next month is #LGBTQ+ History Month? On Thursday, September 30th, Project THRIVE will be preparing you for LGBTQ+ History Month with a free webinar titled Teaching LGBTQ+ History - A Past Reclaimed: How Youth-Serving Professionals Can Prepare for an Inclusive and Educational LGBTQ+ History Month.
October is LGBTQ+ History Month, which provides a powerful opportunity for educators and youth-serving professionals to both learn about and teach their young people about LGBTQ+ history in America. Facilitators Rick Oculto (he/him/his), Education Manager at Our Family Coalition and Erik Adamian (he/him/his), Education Director at ONE Archives Foundation will share strategies for advocating for and implementing inclusive education. This webinar will include best practices for teaching inclusive LGBTQ+ history and social science, discuss prominent figures and events, and practice methods of applying an LGBTQ+ lens to history that is already being taught. This webinar will be geared towards teachers, educators, after-school professionals, and other youth-serving professionals who work closely with young people. History has often been told through the perspective of the privileged which has made the presence of queer history mostly unknown. This webinar and its presenters are dedicated to interrupting this narrative and acknowledging the necessity of discussing the intersecting cultures and identities within queer history and working towards a just, anti-sexist, and anti-racist framework within education.
