CLASS ACT

Ten Queer Historical Figures California’s New LGBT Curriculum Should Teach About

The editors at Ms. magazine don’t care about 17 ways to add bounce to your curls or other women’s magazine fodder. Tackling California’s new FAIR Act, which mandates that the accomplishments of LGBT figures be taught in public schools, they came up with a list of ten queers that should be added to textbooks. Included are lesbian scribe Gertrude Stein, child-health advocate Dr. Sara Josephine Baker, activist/politician Harvey Milk and lifelong-bachelor President James Buchanan. What, no Abraham Lincoln or Janet Reno?

Is there someone else who should  be on the list? School us in the comments!
