Gay-rights section in history textbooks

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

For years gay-rights have been brushed aside, and even when these rights were gained, the textbook companies never made any announcement of an integration of gay-rights into their future textbooks.The aim of this petition is to write new history books documenting the struggle and perseverance of LGBTQ members, from the Romans up until gay-marriage in 2015. This struggle is not intended to replace any other struggles in history, but rather be an addition to the textbook.

This issue is perhaps more important than ever, due to nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court.This makes it more likely that within the current youngest generations lifetime, that gay marriage rights and the freedom of homosexuality be revoked. While some people claim that homosexuality is wrong, this should not not mean we cover up and overlook gay rights. Even mass tradgedies from more recently, such as The My-Lai Massacure, have not been overlooked, so why should gay rights be ignored.

To those who are also in the LGBTQ+ community, this is our chance to unite as a community, and would help many generations yet to come unite in the fight for true equality. This is an opportunity for us to show that we have been bruised abused and cut down, but that we should never, and will never turn against people struggling for equality. This isn’t just to help us it’s to help all those with only a small voice speaking against a thousand others. The only way minorities become majorities are through uniting with each other and lending each other a hand when they need it.

So I ask you, if you’re white, a person of color, LGBTQ+, cis-het, Christian, aetheist, or none of the above, please sign this petition, and help unite people instead of tearing each other apart.
