In honor of LGBT History Month (October), this PowerPoint presentation includes quotes by 22 inspirational people from the LGBT community. Each quote is on its own slide, along with a picture of the individual and a brief description of what they are known for.
There is a mix of historical figures, modern individuals, a variety of ethnic backgrounds, and a mix of men and women. This is a great way to inspire your students and introduce them to famous LGBT people they may not have heard of, or may not have realized are LGBT. The quotes are a mix of general inspiration (following dreams, being successful, etc.) and quotes about tolerance and celebrating the LGBT experience.
This would be a great warm-up or closure to class, could be used for writing prompts or to spark class discussions. The slides are visually appealing and the thought-provoking.
