On July 14, the new curriculum includes the history of American LGBT people was unanimously voted by the California State Board of Education.

Students will thus be able to learn the history of American LGBT people within their school. They will be able to learn the impact of the LGBT community in America, both in history-social science framework.

Know that this teaching is not done in universities but in primary schools and high school. For example, 4th grade students will learn the emergence of homosexual organizations that fought for LGBT rights in the 50's. Students later will learn everything that happened in the 60's with the Stonewall riots and the first Gay Pride, and everything developed after in the 70's until today, until the battle that brought us the right to marry.

Also an initiative was launched on Twitter under the hashtag #FAIR4All to thank the board of education with photos of personalities from the community who have marked our history as Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay mayor of a major American city.
