From A to Zee: The Future of LGBTQ+ Inclusive Curriculums Looks Bright!

This summer I was able to make a dream come true. I never thought I’d be able to pair my LGBTQ+ and legal identities together to benefit queer youth. As a wee law school student over ten years ago, I had always dreamt of attending the Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair. Just like with PRIDE events or a family reunion, there is a certain spiritual fulfillment that occurs when you are surrounded by people who share some of your same lived experiences. It’s rare enough to be a Black attorney but even far rarer to be a Black LGBTQ+ attorney.

Bonauto, GLAD’s Civil Rights Project Director. “However, the breadth of the exemption being sought by CSS in Fulton would take our nation backwards. It would allow individual religious disapproval to work its way back into lawmaking – a situation that is contrary to the promise of equal protection for all embedded in our Constitution, and one that the American people and two decades of Supreme Court precedent have already rejected.”
