Westland Middle School summer assignment is about “Being an LGBTQIAP+ Advcocate”


A summer assignment at Westland Middle School in Montgomery County, Maryland asked students to become advocates for the “LGBTQIAP+” community. They could make a poster, a flag, a proposal for a learning event or an invitation to speak to Alex Gino (they/them), a self-described “author of queer and progressive middle grade fiction.”

It is unclear if this was an assignment for all students or if it was required or optional.
