In today's society, we suffer from a lack of LGBT+ history. If America truly wants equal rights then why are we not taught the history of the LGBT+ community? Every history teacher has told me that we teach history because we do not want to repeat it. Well, various hardships have been brought upon to the LGBT+ community. We reserve the right to have our story told just as much as any other group or community. The treatment we have received over the years is evil and unfair. We ask that the school system and America will own up to their mistakes and help kids understand that it's okay to be different and that our story matters. We will never stop fighting. We make changes every day and I hope this will be one of them.
A study shows that 80% of LGBT+ youth have experienced severe social isolation due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. It's disgusting that kids have to go through this and feel like they do not matter. Let's show everyone that our story counts!
