On this date the California State Assembly passed an LGBT History Bill. According to The Advocate, the bill was sponsored by gay senator MARK LENO and titled “The Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful Education Act.” The act ensures that the historical contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are accurately and fairly portrayed in instructional materials by adding LGBT people to the existing list of under-represented cultural and ethnic groups already included in the state’s inclusive education requirements.” The bill passed the Assembly by a vote of 49-25 after passing the Senate in April and was signed into law by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.
