DR. VIRGINIA URIBE, THE PIONEER!

Friends of Project 10 Inc. is proud to announce that a number of media outlets and LGBT nonprofits have recognized the work of Dr. Virginia Uribe, who founded the Project 10 program for the Los Angeles Unified School District in 1984, and later, Friends of Project 10 Inc. in 1986.

It was a time when LGBT students were considered "throwaway students," and they were treated as objects of hate and bigotry by not only their peers, but by the educational institutions that were there to serve them.

The Project 10 program and Friends of Project 10 Inc. were the first of their type in the world to address the issues of institutionalized homophobia in education, and to provide support and outreach to this very underserved student population.

We thank the various organizations for their recognition.
