Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says her state is among those that mandate the teaching of LGBTQ history and achievements in public schools during the month of October, which is LGBTQ+ History Month.
"Pride Month, which, that's in June, and then LGBTQ History Month, which is in October, and then you have Day of Silence, which is in April," Higgins lists. "Now we have over two months of time during which we are supposed to celebrate sexual deviance."
She says all these events, under the umbrella of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLESN, focus on indoctrinating students.
"They're using … all these events to normalize homosexuality and to silence and demonize people who feel differently, who believe differently," the cultural issues writer asserts.
She also points out that the first week of November is designated as Solidarity Week, which focuses on youth involvement in LGBTQ activism.
