OAH Joins AHA Condemning Exclusion of LGBTQ History in Florida
The OAH has, along with more than forty organizations, endorsed the American Historical Association's May 16, 2023 statement opposing the exclusion of LGBTQ+ History in Florida. The Florida Department of Education's recent ruling extends the state's "Don't Say Gay" law and "would eliminate almost entirely the history of LGBTQ+ people from the Florida social studies curriculum."
The OAH has previously spoken out against efforts to limit the teaching of LGBTQ history in May 2021 and March 2022.
