According to the 2000 U.S. Census Reports,
1.51% of Americans consider themselves LGBTQ.
- That Is OVER 4.3 Million People

If We Break That Down:
4.3 Million =
1/8th The Population of California
Population of the State of Kentucky
7.6 Times LARGER THAN the Population of Wyoming

A NOTE ABOUT A FORMER POST:

Previously, there had been a post noting that 85% of teachers opposed integrating LGB History into their curriculum.

These statistics were compiled by the Massachusetts Education Authority and "Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth: Report of the Massachusetts Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth," 1993. 

These stats were and are STILL reported by NOW (National Organization of Women) and while this information may seem VERY dated and minimum in research from a larger spectrum of teachers, it is one of the MOST RECENT (yes, sadly) studies that has been done in the last 20 years.

I removed the post below because the current thread was reblogging the post as “sexual orientation” within young students and declarations of “sexual preference” from teenagers. The post had NOTHING to do with how preteens and teens were declaring their sexuality (this is a different argument) but instead that when reviewing history within the educational system, QUEER/LGBT history is left out or not properly represented in texts, discussion or recollection.

While I, Rebecca, do not have an answer as to how a school should integrate queer history into lesson plans, I do believe it is important that over time a method is learned.
