Rodney Wilson

Meet Rodney Wilson, Founder of LGBTQ+ History Month USA, Tuesday, May 24th, 7:30 - 8:30 PM

Rodney's groundbreaking personal story is the subject of the short documentary "Taboo Teaching."

Rodney Wilson was a secondary history and government teacher in 1994 when he became the first out-gay teacher to be granted tenure in the state of Missouri; and also that year founded LGBTQ+ History Month USA, the world's first national history month for LGBTQ+ people. Given the current cultural and political storm surrounding the teaching of history and LGBTQ+ topics in K-12 classrooms, Rodney's story is invaluable for everyone to hear.

School Assembly with Eric Marcus & His Audio Oral History Tour

Funded by the New York City Council for NYCDOE Middle Schools and High Schools

In the late 1980s, Eric Marcus began recording over 100 audio oral history interviews with LGBTQ activists and champions from the 20th century. These interviews informed Eric's authorship of two books and inspired the award-winning podcast series Making Gay History.

Eric will come to your school and provide an assembly for your students with his audio oral history tour using the Give Voice to History Project podcast series, produced in partnership with History UnErased for NYCDOE. Students will hear about Eric’s experiences meeting these extraordinary people and listen to their brave, funny, and often frustrating tales of championing LGBTQ equality. 

History UnErased will provide each participating school with a one-hour introduction to their school's account to access History UnErased’s Intersections and Connections curriculum, which includes complementing Give Voice to History Project podcasts, and will provide pre and post-assembly resources for students. An optional city-wide virtual follow-up session with educators and students from all participating schools will be offered in June 2022 (date TBD).

A limited number of first-come-first-served assemblies for NYCDOE middle schools and high schools are available for booking. Submit your request today!
