LGBTQ+ Histories in New Brunswick (Grade 5)

Updated: Aug 8, 2020


Did you know that LGBTQ+ New Brunswickers’ histories are not always known because places that keep histories, places like museums, archives, and school curricula did not think that it was important to remember these histories? Although filling the gaps can be a bit tricky, it is important to remember that the histories from LGBTQ+ individuals have always been present in our society.


This cellphilm was created for use in the Grade 5 Social Studies classroom in New Brunswick, and seeks to address the specific curriculum outcome: "5.6.1: Illustrate the similarities and differences of past societies and your society."


We have also created a suggested lesson plan for teachers who might want to incorporate the cellphilm, here.
