Unheard Voices – a collaboration among ADL, GLSEN and StoryCorps – is an oral history and curriculum project that seeks to integrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history, people and events into classroom curricula. 

At the core of the program are brief audio interviews with individuals who bore witness to or helped to shape LGBT history in some way. 

Each interview is accompanied by a backgrounder with discussion questions and activities for educators, and a student reading with biographical information about the interview subject and historical background on the topic.

Visit the Unheard Voices main page for more information on the project, lesson plans and additional resources.
