Teacher Creates Workbook to Educate Kids About LGBT Contributions

Earlier this week, a large part of San Francisco was stunned, bitter, depressed — pick your adjective — when some parents complained about schoolboys taking a field trip to the iconic Castro District. The boys visited Harvey Milk's camera store and stopped by the historic Pink Triangle Memorial Park.

No, they didn't visit any leather shops or adult stores.

We would venture to guess that those same uncomfortable parents aren't going to like this: A Sacramento teacher has published a cutting-edge educational workbook that aims to teach kids about the LGBT community.

The workbook has not yet made it into classrooms, but it very well could if Sen.Mark Leno's (D-San Francisco) Fair Education Act bill, which demands schools start teaching kids about the LGBT community, passes.
