LGBTQ students face challenges far beyond bullying and bathroom access. Almost universally, PreK-12 classroom curricula do not reflect, validate, or engage queer students. Many schools use outdated and biased instructional materials because creating new ones is expensive, difficult, and there is little guidance. This presents a ripe opportunity for open educational resources. This session will ask participants to brainstorm the benefits and challenges in leveraging OER for LGBTQ students and workshop ways to support both the development of content and the policies critical for implementation.
