Queer California: Untold Stories Teacher Resources

Explore California as a major site of LGBTQ+ community, culture, and politics. Hear stories of the persistence of hope and change in the face of ongoing violence and hate in these communities. Celebrate the diversity of queer identities and join the conversation surrounding a much larger intersectional battle for change. 
 
The exhibition includes representations of queer bodies and material with sexual content in order to affirm the ways in which they have been central to the experience of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities. We encourage teachers to preview the exhibition ahead of time.
