Illinois has passed a law requiring "LGBT history" to be taught in all public schools.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker, D-llinois, signed House Bill 246 on Aug. 9 with the objective of encouraging a more diverse history curriculum.

HB 246 says the provisions are in the public interest, for the public benefit and to serve secular public purposes.

This affects all schools, stipulating they include "the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people" in official textbooks.

It also includes a section that allows the state Education Department to implement rules "as necessary" for the law to be enacted and "to ensure the religious neutrality of the textbook block grant program."

Gov. Pritzker said, "The LGBTQ community won't just have a seat at the table, they will be equal partners in the fight to make equality a lived reality for all."

New Jersey, California and Colorado have also embraced the new LGBT school curriculum.
