"I was so inspired that LGBTQ history was approached here in such an academically rigorous way. Your curriculum, and the context you provide, will go a long way towards making teachers who perhaps are not so comfortable feel like they can teach this and teach it well. I absolutely love the diversity and the depth of the teaching materials!" - Amber
