Advocate for LGBTQ+ youth in K-12 schools

Inclusive Curricular Standards Policies

*Last Updated April 2022

Legislation passed in six states to amend curricular standards to include affirming representation of LGBTQ+ communities in K-12 schools. Under affirming statewide curricular standards local education agencies and schools develop curriculum that is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of communities. An additional four states still have so-called “No Promo Homo” laws that prohibit positive and affirming representation of LGBTQ+ identities in K-12 schools, and sixteen states have passed curriculum censorship laws that prohibit honest teaching about race, gender, and/or LGBTQ+ communities.
