High School, College or Synagogue Venues
Rick Landman uses his life stories to focus on LGBT HISTORY and HOLOCAUST STUDIES at:
LGBT Pride Shabbat Services, Yom HaShoah Programs, Kristallnacht Programs from his personal perspective.
You should also check the ONE MAN SHOW for a more entertaining venue to hear the stories. These programs are appropriate for high school and college students. These can either be incorporated into a course curriculum as part of a special program for diversity or civil rights, or as a means of focusing on LGBT history.
This program can either focus on the American LGBT Rights Movement History or what happened to the Homosexual Community during the Nazi era and the Roots of the Modern LGBT Movement starting in Germany with Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. There is a more academic talk which covers LGBT History from Napoleon to Kim Davis in 60 minutes; while other talks use Rick's life experiences to focus on post World War II history. There is also a special program for High School students where Rick will relate stories about the history and will focus on what it was like coming out as a teenager in the 1960's. His story can be incorporated into the curriculum or as part of a "Gay-Straight Alliance" Program. This can also be incorporated into religious programs such as a LGBT Pride Shabbat program. For examples, see below.
David Carter, author of the book "Stonewall", conducted a LGBT Field Trip for students from Washington College. Rick Landman spoke along with other early LGBT activists.

The LGBT History Program can be conducted in a high school or college setting, as well as at various LGBT groups or conferences to explore LGBT History in America (and its German origins), as part of an entire Inclusive Civil Rights Program where the growth of LGBT and Jewish rights are included specifically in relating America's Civil Rights Struggles.

Many of the past Holocaust engagements have dealt with various events such as Yom HaShoah or Kristallnacht programs in Synagogues, or combined with a guided tour through a Holocaust Museum. These topics have also been conducted in a college or high school setting, for various courses, for Holocaust Studies and History classes, etc. This program can include specifically what it was like for the Homosexual Community during the life of Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld and during the Nazi era.
