Governor Signs Bill Requiring LGBT Contributions Be Taught In Schools

The law will affect social science textbooks statewide as well as the curriculum at individual schools.  Democratic Senator Mark Leno wrote the bill.  He says the state has been censoring an important part of civil rights history:

"As a gay man myself, who knew from a very early age who I was, with none of this information, it would have been life-changing to have a historical context for who I was."

After signing the bill, Governor Brown said "history should be honest." But many Republicans opposed the measure, saying it was agenda-driven.  Randy Thomasson with the conservative "SaveCalifornia.com" says the bill amounts to sexual brainwashing, and says the Governor has trampled on the rights of the state's parents.  He urges them to remove their kids from public schools.
