A few years ago, teachers in Maryland were afraid to include LGBTQ references in sex education courses because they could face lawsuits.
But they and high school administrators in Montgomery County have found that a significant number of LGBTQ students feel non-existent and unrepresented in their schools, and this can lead to negative effects, not to mention incidents of hate and bias.
Thirty-three American LGBTQ students, or former students, are suing the Department of Education.
It was the first time this year that Kean University in New Jersey held a Lavender Graduation on campus to honor LGBTQ students who have graduated.
