Supporting Black LGBTQ Students

 Three pictures of Black LGBTQ icons: Audre Lorde, Marsha P Johnson, and Bayard Rustin


Students thrive when they see themselves reflected in their curriculum. For Black LGBTQ students, this means learning about and honoring history, people, and events related to their intersectional identity as both Black and LGBTQ.

Black History Month is in February, but the inclusion of Black LGBTQ identities in school should happen all year round.

GSAs and educators can include Black LGBTQ identities in school using our icons resource. In addition you can follow GLSEN's Student Advocate of the Year Ose Arheghan on GLSEN's instagram (@glsenofficial) throughout the month as they share Black, queer women and femme icons that should be taught in an inclusive school curriculum!
