Voices of Pride

NEA’s series, “Voices of Pride: The LGBTQ Experience in Schools 50 Years After Stonewall” are personal essays from educators that are not only touching, poignant stories but are also filled with resources and actions you can take to support LGBTQ students and educators. For many underserved students who sit at the intersection of multiple marginalized identities, the challenges and disparities of being LGBTQ are even greater. Having role models and a support system they can turn to at school is critical to their welfare.
