Supporting Black LGBTQ Students

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

Audre Lorde quote: There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.


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.
