Life after Obergefell: Will Queers Finally Become Visible within Public Schools?
Summary Since the 1920s, US public schools have focused on erasing queer identity. From teacher purges to vicious bullying of queer youth, these actions have been the norm for nearly one hundred years - thanks to the interplay of law, policy, and politics. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, Lugg uses this history to illuminate a possible way forward to make public schools places of tolerance and even liberation for both queer youth and queer adults
