Al-Hajj in New York City, New York.
Alhajj was founded by a transgender woman, who says her parents were worried about her safety when they found out she was transitioning.
The school teaches the “transgender model” and is the only school in the country that has taught such an idea in its curriculum.
AlHajjaq also has a transgender student, who is now in high school.
“I was scared and I was confused and I wanted to know everything,” Alhaji says.
“So I started to research, and I read books and I heard about all kinds of different people and I tried to find out what my rights are.”
AlHaji says she was bullied at school and at home.
She says the school is very inclusive and has a lot of support from other parents and students.
She also found that her family was supportive of her transition.
“My family is really proud of me, and my mom is really happy, too, because I can be a girl now,” she says.
St. Bonaventure High School in Vermont.
St Bonavance is the first school in America to have taught transgenderism.
The university and its parent, the Catholic Diocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, have made the school a national leader in transgender education.
The St Bonafide School of Arts and Sciences is the third-largest private school in Vermont, with over 6,000 students.
St Marys Catholic High School is the largest Catholic school in Minnesota and has an enrollment of more than 7,000.
The students in both schools have an LGBTQ experience and St Mary’s is working on expanding the LGBTQ curriculum.
Stony Brook University in New England.
Students are taught in the school’s LGBTQ studies program.
The program, which was created in 2013, teaches about LGBTQ experiences in the context of history, literature, gender and other topics.
The focus is on the impact of LGBTQ history on the LGBTQ community, but Stonybrook is also teaching that history is not about the struggle, but the progress of the LGBTQ people.
“We teach that LGBTQ history is about the stories that shaped who we are, how we have come to be, and how we are going to live,” says David Ochsner, director of the school.
The curriculum also covers how students are shaped by social norms, including the idea that they need to dress in ways that conform to their gender and sexual identity.
“A lot of our students have had their own struggles with their bodies, and we want to teach them that this is an experience they can have and they can take pride in that, too,” says Och, who also runs the school with Dr. Jennifer Schulz.
North Dakota State University.
The NDSU is the nation’s largest private university with more than 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
In 2016, the school changed its curriculum to include transgender issues.
It now teaches students that “transsexualism” is an umbrella term that includes a range of transgender experiences.
“Transsexualism is not just a one-size-fits-all experience,” says Professor Lisa Hovsepian, director and chief executive officer of NDS U’s Office of LGBTQ Equity and Inclusion.
“For transgender students and their families, it is a whole different approach to how they understand their identity and how they live their lives.”
The school also has an LGBTQ Studies program, and Hovs says the students in that program have “very positive and engaging experiences.”
DePaul University in Chicago.
De Paul is one of the nation, and the most famous, universities with a transgender identity.
The DePaul School of Law has been a leader in LGBTQ-inclusive education since the 1970s.
De La Rosa, DePaul’s first openly transgender faculty member, says that she felt comfortable teaching the school was in a place where people were comfortable with the issue.
“That’s why we did it.
We were comfortable in a safe space,” she said.
“Because we knew the school would not be hostile to us.
So we were able to come to terms with the fact that this was something that we had to teach and that people would understand.”
De La Rosa says the transgender students in the program are “really strong and they’re really accepting of each other and that we’re all human beings.”
Florida Atlantic University.
Florida is one the most LGBT-friendly states in the U.S. The Atlantic’s LGBTQ Studies department, which has taught more than 1,000 transgender students since it opened in 2010, includes both transgender and non-transgender students.
“It’s not just one thing,” De LaSpara said.
The group also includes a group of trans students who have also been on the receiving end of discrimination in school.
Hovser, who co-directs the program, says she thinks it’s important to educate students about LGBTQ identities.
