    A fantastically useful book. Obviously great for high school and college teachers, but also a must-have for public historians or anyone else with an educational bent. I think it could also serve as a really stellar introduction to U.S. LGBT history as a whole... topics, methods, a sense of the field in general. I recognized a lot of names in the list of contributors, and was super impressed across the board with the quality of writing. This is not some throwaway publication. The first several ess A fantastically useful book. Obviously great for high school and college teachers, but also a must-have for public historians or anyone else with an educational bent. I think it could also serve as a really stellar introduction to U.S. LGBT history as a whole... topics, methods, a sense of the field in general. I recognized a lot of names in the list of contributors, and was super impressed across the board with the quality of writing. This is not some throwaway publication. The first several essays discuss general approaches and stories about teaching LGBT history in the classroom, cogently explaining how and why. The main chunk in the middle offers a series of short essays on time periods and topics, suggesting ways to incorporate the relevant LGBT history into existing courses or modules. Finally, several more essays speak from a tool perspective, talking about ways to teach using types of media like oral histories or documentaries. It's thorough and helpful, never gets too bogged down by theory or minutiae, and I appreciate how often the essay writers refer to each other. The editors must have done a great job of facilitating that, and it keeps the book from getting repetitive. There's nothing in it that doesn't belong, every essay serves a purpose. Love it!

    It took me a long time to tackle this cover-to-cover but I'm very glad I did. What an excellent resource for anyone interested in incorporating more LGBTQ+ history into their curriculums, but also for anyone who feels that they don't know enough about the long and diverse history of queer people in the United States. Thoughtful and comprehensive... I was thoroughly impressed with this collection. It took me a long time to tackle this cover-to-cover but I'm very glad I did.

    This was such a great read. A significant part at the beginning of the book is geared towards teachers, and it's tehrefore a great resource for educators who want to use this book in the classroom. It is also just a great book overall, and interesting for anyone who wants to learn more about Queer and Trans history. It is easy to read and is very well-balanced in the way it presents information.

    Though history teachers, mostly at the high school and college level, are the intended audience for this collection of essays, the book does provide a fascinating look at how our understanding of sexual orientation, gender, and gender expression is fluid and rooted in a larger history of the country. What we tend to think "always was," actually was not.
