Gay History Bill Introduced in Calif.


Gay California state senator Mark Leno introduced a bill Monday that would add historical contributions of LGBT people to school textbooks.

Leno sees the bill as an effort to combat school bullying. "Most textbooks don't include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history," Leno said in a press release. "Our collective silence on this issue perpetuates negative stereotypes of LGBT people and leads to increased bullying of young people."

Leno's legislation mirrors a similar bill passed by the legislature four years ago but vetoed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
