First Graders in San Francisco Learn About Same-Sex Marriage


Via the gay website The Edge:

Author Eric Ross visited an elementary school in San Francisco last week to read his new [same-sex marriage] children’s book, ’My Uncle’s Wedding’ to approximately 40 first grade students. The reading coincided with the celebration of Harvey Milk Day, a holiday celebrating the achievements of the late Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected into public office in California.

"It was an honor to read ’My Uncle’s Wedding’ to the kids," said Ross. "I wish all schools had a more inclusive curriculum that didn’t sensor [sic] history or current events."

... "I can’t wait for the day when our children get a complete picture of history instead of one-sided, fractioned pieces of information," said Ross.

Want to improve student education in your city? Consider donating a book to your local school or library. Sometimes donating books is the only way to get them into schools and libraries, and ’My Uncle’s Wedding’ would make an excellent gift.
