LGBTQ Native students can have more positive school experiences if they see themselves reflected in their curriculum. This means learning about and honoring history, people, and events related to their intersectional identity as both LGBTQ and Native.

Native American Heritage Month is every November, but inclusion of LGBTQ Native identities in school should happen all year round.

GSAs and educators can include LGBTQ Native identities in school using our icons resource and timeline resource. This Native American Heritage Month, members of GLSEN's National Student Council are sharing more heroes on Instagram. Just follow @glsen!
