LA elementary schools to celebrate National Coming Out Day with a week of LGBTQ+ lessons

Los Angeles elementary schools with students as young as five will participate in a weeklong celebration of "National Coming Out Day" starting Monday.

The "Week of Action Toolkit – Elementary," sent from the Los Angeles Unified School District's Board of Education, outlines suggested lesson plans for elementary students around LGBTQ+ topics. The document, which a teacher shared with City Journal, noted teachers can adapt the lesson plans to better suit the needs of their students. 

The toolkit includes an "Identity Map activity" for students to complete at the start of the week, preparing "students to think critically about identity and intersectionality." Teachers are encouraged to have students create an image representing their identity that includes features like their race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, sexuality and mental health.

Please help put parents in charge of their child’s education by forwarding this article to other parents, family, friends and voters.
