The P.E.R.S.O.N. Project, and its precursor GLAAD's Project 21, worked to ensure that the public schools in the United States
would present fair, unbiased and accurate information regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and about the
nature and diversity of sexual orientation. The Records contain the research collected for this purpose, including correspondence,
reports, clippings, and information on textbook policies throughout the United States.
In 1990, GLAAD/San Francisco Bay Area launched Project 21 in association with the Bay Area Network of Gay and Lesbian Educators
(BANGLE) and the Gay and Lesbian Youth Advocacy Council of San Francisco. Jessea Greenman was a principal team member. The
project coordinated a successful state-wide effort to pressure the California State Board of Education to include fair and
accurate information about lesbians, gays and bisexuals in the State health, physical education and social history frameworks.
GLAAD ended support of Project 21 in 1995.
