Pushing Limits

Teaching Queer and Disability History

Beginning this January, a groundbreaking law requires the teaching of disability history — and the history of lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals and transgendered people — to be integrated into social studies class work.  It’s called the FAIR Education Act. We talk to two women who work with school boards and others to make the requirements of the law just another part of the standard school day.

Guests:
Dolores Tejada, community organizer for
Community Resources for Independent Living (CRIL).

Judy Appel, Executive Director of the San Francisco-based,
“Our Family Coalition” working on issues affecting queer families
with children.

With an essay by Jacob Lesner-Buxton.
Produced by Jacob Lesner-Buxton.
Hosted by Leah Gardner and Adrienne Lauby.
