As is the case with programming, you can have very focused educational posters that are
tied to a particular date or event. Examples of this might include: National Coming Out
Day (October 11), World AIDS Day (December 1), Veteran's Day (November 11), Valen
tine's Day (February 14).
On Valentine's Day you might want to have flyers with many same gender couples (try to
have diverse images) with a line that says something like, Love comes in many forms.
You might use Veteran's Day as an opportunity to educate about ROTC or the Don't Ask,
Don't Tell policy.
You might have posters that focus on some of the major stigmas or myths about lgbt people:
that it's a sin, sickness, or crime. You may want to educate about lgbt people through his
tory. Additionally you can focus on particular groups such as people of African descent dur
ing Black History Month in February or women during Women's History Month in March.
The following multi color posters are available from The Stonewall Center, Crampton
House/SW UMass, Amherst, MA 01003 413/545 4824

live with verbal and sexual harassment. At least one of every ten people is lgbt. So
