The idea of this building housing regular, straight people drinking regular, straight drinks was peculiar to me.

So many things happened this year that weren’t terrible!
The people trying to repeal SB 48, California’s gay history bill, aren’t going to be able to pull it off.
Forget about the fact that most California public schools can’t even afford new textbooks — let’s make sure that when they do, Harvey Milk isn’t mentioned anywhere.
The predictable, yet still enraging, backlash to California’s groundbreaking LGBT-inclusive history textbooks.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill today requiring LGBT history inclusion in social studies texts. Which of the US’s two largest textbook markets will influence the entire nation?
Schoolkids in California are one step away from having gay role models included in their standard social science curriculum.
California children are one step closer to being allowed to find out that gay people exist, Adam Lambert sets us straight on nail polish, and Anita Bryant got pied for real.
What if you had found out about gay historical figures and role models from your teacher, and not frantic late-night googling?
