June is Pride Month, which means more rainbow flags are flying than ever. Yet in some parts of the country, lawmakers are trying to bury LGBTQ history by forbidding teachers to discuss it and banning books about it. Despite that pushback, incoming San Francisco State University Provost Amy Sueyoshi says the time is right for the Queer History Conference 2022, to be held on campus and at other locations around the city June 12 – 15, because the field of LGBTQ history has never been stronger.
