Acting Out!  Combating Homophobia through Teacher Activism. Mollie Blackburn, Caroline Clark, Lauren Kenney & Jill Smith, $29.95

Teachers from urban, suburban, and rural districts join together in a teacher inquiry group to challenge homophobia and heterosexism in schools and classrooms.


Am I Safe Here? LGBTQ Teens and Bullying In the Schools. Donn Short, $22.95

This book shines a light on the marginalization and bullying faced by LGBTQ youth, offering a new conceptualization of school safety. Donn Short treats students as the experts on what happens in their schools, giving them a chance to speak for themselves. They identify what it would take to make a school truly safe — insightfully explaining that safety doesn’t come merely from security cameras, ID tags, and dress codes, but from a culture that values equity and social justice. Revealing the reality of going to school in an environment that implicitly (and sometimes explicitly) endorses homophobia, heterosexism, and heteronormativity, the students share their ideas about how to change school culture. They envision a future in which LGBTQ youth are an expected, respected, and celebrated part of school life.

Am I Safe Here? explores what needs to be done to create equitable and inclusive schools – but it is not strictly about formal professional development plans. Rather, it draws from the informal, spontaneous, timely, and relevant words of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered students to show that nothing less than a total culture change is needed.

This book is written for teachers, administrators, pre-service teachers, guidance counsellors, social workers, trustees, parents, and other LGBTQ allies who want to promote student safety and school improvement by creating a safe and inclusive school for LGBTQ students.


Creating Safe and Supportive Learning Environments: a Guide for Working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth and Families. Emily Fisher & Karen Komosa-Hawkins, Editors, $79.70

The importance of creating safe spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students in the school environment cannot be overstated. Drawing on the expertise of researchers and practitioners, CREATING SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS provides a comprehensive examination of the topics most relevant for school professionals. The first section lays out the theoretical foundation and background school professionals need to understand the social and political trends that impact LGBTQ individuals, the development of sexual orientation and gender identity, risk and resilience factors, and the intersection of LGBTQ identity with other aspects of diversity. The second section explores topics critical for the development of safe, supportive school environments, including understanding legal and ethical mandates, training school personnel, addressing bullying and harassment, and developing inclusive classrooms. Special topics related to counseling LGBTQ students, supporting families of LGBTQ students, becoming an ally and advocate in the schools, and connecting with community resources are also covered.

Dead Boys Can't Dance: Sexual Orientation, Masculinity and Suicide. Michel Dorais & Simon Lajeunesse, $19.95 http://www.parentbooks.ca/images/tiny%20maple%20leaf.JPG

This provocative, groundbreaking study looks at the tragic consequences of homophobia. Recognizing the link between the stigmatization of homosexuality and the high level of suicide attempts by youths who are homosexual or are perceived as such by their peers, authors Dorais and Lajeunesse prove that homophobia is a serious social problem. Their call for preventative measures, social education and recognition of the prevalence of the problem is urgent and clear.


Dignity for All: Safeguarding LGBT Students. Peter DeWitt, $43.50

Students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered are susceptible to harassment from their peers and are at high risk of dropping out of school. This book provides professional development ideas and real-life vignettes that will help educational leaders foster a more caring school culture not only for LGBT students, but for all students.


Don’t Be So Gay: Queers, Bullying, and Making Schools Safe. Donn Short, $32.95

Recent cases of teen suicide linked with homophobic bullying have thrust the issue of school safety into the national spotlight. In DON’T BE SO GAY, Donn Short considers the effectiveness of safe-school legislation. Drawing on interviews with queer youth and their allies, Short concludes that current legislation is more responsive than proactive. Moreover, cultural influences and peer pressure may be more powerful than legislation in shaping the school environment. Exploring how students’ own experiences, ideas, and definitions of safety might be translated into policy reform, this book offers a fresh perspective on a hotly debated issue.


Family Pride: What LGBT Families Should Know about Navigating Home, School, and Safety in Their Neighborhoods. Michael Shelton, $19.00

FAMILY PRIDE is the first book for queer parents, their families, and allies that emphasizes community safety. While the national focus remains on the mistreatment of LGBT people in schools, the reality is that LGBT families also face hostility in various settings-professional, recreational, and social. Drawing on his years as a dedicated community activist and on the experiences of LGBT parents, Michael Shelton offers concrete strategies that LGBT families can use to intervene in and resolve difficult community issues, teach their children resiliency skills, and find safe and respectful programs for them.

From the Dress-Up Corner to the Senior Prom: Navigating Gender and Sexual Diversity in PreK-12 Schools. Jennifer Bryan, $48.95

Very few PreK-12 teachers are adequately trained to address the gender identity and sexual identity of their students in a developmentally-appropriate and pedagogically-sound manner. Yet responsible adults must help children navigate the inherently diverse, increasingly complex world of gender and sexuality in the twenty-first century. FROM THE DRESS-UP CORNER TO THE SENIOR PROM is a practical, forward thinking resource for anyone involved in educating children and adolescents. The book features thoughtful questions, models of dialogue, accessible lesson plans, and many pedagogical strategies. At the heart of this book, though, are the evocative stories from teachers, students, and parents that Bryan has listened to over the span of her career. These personal anecdotes bring the comprehensive explorations of this seminal work to life.


Gay & Lesbian History for Kids: the Century-Long Struggle for LGBT Rights.  Jerome Pohlen, $21.95

Given today's news, it would be easy to get the impression that the campaign for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality is a recent development, but it is only the final act in a struggle that started more than a century ago. The history is told through personal stories and firsthand accounts of the movement's key events, like the 1950s "Lavender Scare," the Stonewall Inn uprising, and the AIDS crisis. This up-to-date history includes the landmark Supreme Court decision making marriage equality the law of the land. Twenty-one activities enliven the history and demonstrate the spirited ways the LGBT community has pushed for positive social change.

Get That Freak: Homophobia and Transphobia in High Schools.  Rebecca Haskell & Brian Burtch, $18.95 http://www.parentbooks.ca/images/tiny%20maple%20leaf.JPG

Bullying in schools has garnered significant attention recently, but despite this, little has been said about the occurrence of homophobic and transphobic bullying in Canadian high schools. GET THAT FREAK fills that gap by exploring the experiences of bullying among youth who identify or are identified as queer. Through interviews with recent high school graduates in British Columbia, Haskell and Burtch share stories of physical, verbal and emotional harassment, and offer important insights into the negative outcomes that result from the experience of being bullied. Challenging the familiar image of these youth as helpless victims, this book also recognizes positive outcomes: moments of resistance, friendship and inner strength. Finally, the authors make recommendations for challenging homophobic and transphobic bullying in high schools and supporting students who experience this form of harassment.


Homophobia: Deal with It and Turn Prejudice Into Pride. Steven Solomon & Nick Johnson, $12.95 http://www.parentbooks.ca/images/tiny%20maple%20leaf.JPG

The Deal with It Series helps adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities. This book will help you deal with homophobia — whether you’re the target, the homophobe, or the witness.


Homophobia in the Hallways: Heterosexiam and Transphobia in Canadian Catholic Schools. Tonya Callaghan, $27.95 http://www.parentbooks.ca/images/tiny%20maple%20leaf.JPG

Section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms ensures equality regarding sexual orientation and gender identity in Canada. Despite this, gay, lesbian, and gender-nonconforming teachers in publicly-funded Catholic schools in Ontario and Alberta are being fired for living lives that Church leaders claim run contrary to Catholic doctrine about non-heterosexuality; meanwhile, requests from students to establish Gay/Straight Alliances are often denied.

In Homophobia in the Hallways, Tonya Callaghan interrogates institutionalized homophobia and transphobia in the publicly-funded Catholic school systems of Ontario and Alberta. Featuring twenty interviews with students and teachers who have faced overt discrimination in Catholic schools, the book blends theoretical inquiry and real-world case study, making Callaghan’s study a unique insight into religiously-inspired heterosexism and genderism. She uncovers the causes and effects of the long-standing disconnect between Canadian Catholic schools and the Charter by comparing the treatment of and attitudes towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer teachers and students in these publicly-funded systems.

My New Gender Workbook: a Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving World Peace through Gender Anarchy and Sex Positivity, 2nd Edition. Kate Bornstein, $59.95

Cultural theorists have written loads of smart but difficult-to-fathom texts on gender theory, but most fail to provide a hands-on, accessible guide for those trying to sort out their own sexual identities. In My New Gender Workbook, transgender activist Kate Bornstein brings theory down to Earth and provides a practical approach to living with or without a gender.

Bornstein starts from the premise that there are not just two genders performed in today's world, but countless genders lumped under the two-gender framework. Using a unique, deceptively simple and always entertaining workbook format, complete with quizzes, exercises, and puzzles, Bornstein gently but firmly guides readers toward discovering their own unique gender identity.

Since its first publication in 1997, this book has been challenging, encouraging, questioning, and helping those trying to figure out how to become a "real man," a "real woman," or "something else entirely." In this exciting new edition of her classic text, Bornstein re-examines gender in light of issues like race, class, sexuality, and language. With new quizzes, new puzzles, new exercises, and plenty of Kate's playful and provocative style, My New Gender Workbook promises to help a new generation create their own unique place on the gender spectrum.


One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium: LGBT Educators Speak Out about What's Gotten Better... and What Hasn't. Edited by Kevin Jennings, $20.00

For more than twenty years, the One Teacher in Ten series has served as an invaluable source of strength and inspiration for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender educators. This all-new edition brings together stories from across America — and around the world — resulting in a rich tapestry of varied experiences. From a teacher who feels he must remain closeted in the comparative safety of New York City public schools to teachers who are out in places as far afield as South Africa and China, the teachers and school administrators in One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium prove that LGBT educators are as diverse and complex as humanity itself.

Voices largely absent from the first two editions — including transgender people, people of color, teachers working in rural districts, and educators from outside the United States — feature prominently in this new collection, providing a fuller and deeper understanding of the triumphs and challenges of being an LGBT teacher today.

Sexual Harassment and Bullying: a Guide to Keeping Kids Safe and Holding Schools Accountable. Susan Strauss, $39.95

Stonewall: Breaking Out in the Fight for Gay Rights. Ann Bausum, $19.99

In 1969 being gay in the United States was a criminal offense. It meant living a closeted life or surviving on the fringes of society. People went to jail, lost jobs, and were disowned by their families for being gay. Most doctors considered homosexuality a mental illness. There were few safe havens. The Stonewall Inn, a Mafia-run, filthy, overpriced bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village was one of them.

Police raids on gay bars happened regularly in this era. But one hot June night, when cops pounded on the door of the Stonewall, almost nothing went as planned. Tension was high, the crowd refused to go away. Anger and frustration boiled over.

The raid became a riot.

The riot became a catalyst.

The catalyst triggered an explosive demand for gay rights.

Ann Bausum's riveting exploration of the Stonewall riots and the national gay rights movement that followed is eye-opening, unflinching, and inspiring.

The Transgender Child: a Handbook for Families and Professionals. Stephanie Brill & Rachel Pepper, $24.95

Covering developmental, medical, social, school and legal issues, The Transgender Child is a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind guidebook for the unique challenges that families face when raising a child who steps outside of the “pink or blue box”.


The Transgender Teen: a Handbook for Parents and Professionals Supporting Transgender and Non-Binary Teens. Stephanie Brill & Lisa Kenney, $24.95

What do you do when your son announces he is transgender and asks that you call her by a new name? Or what if your child uses a term you’ve never heard of to describe themselves (neutrois, agender, non-binary, genderqueer, androgyne…) and when you didn’t know what they meant, they left the room and now won’t speak to you about it? Perhaps your daughter recently asked you not to use gendered pronouns when referring to ‘her’ anymore, preferring that you use “they”; you’re left wondering if this is just a phase, or if there’s something more that you need to understand about your child.

There is a generational divide in our understandings of gender. This comprehensive guidebook helps to bridge that divide by exploring the unique challenges that thousands of families face every day raising a teenager who may be transgender, non-binary, gender-fluid or otherwise gender-expansive. Combining years of experience working in the field with extensive research and personal interviews, the authors cover pressing concerns relating to physical and emotional development, social and school pressures, medical considerations, and family communications. Learn how parents can more deeply understand their children, and raise their non-binary or transgender adolescent with love and compassion.

Transphobia — Deal With It. J. Wallace Skelton, illustrated by Nick Johnson, $24.95 (ages 9-13)

Transphobia is intolerance of any part of the range of gender identity. This accessible, illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and true-to-life scenarios to help kids better understand gender identity and determine what they can do to identify and counter transphobia in their schools, homes and communities. Considered from the viewpoint of gender explorers, gender enforcers and witnesses, transphobic behaviour is identified, examined and put into a context that kids can use to understand and accept themselves and others for whatever gender they are — even if that's no gender at all!


Undoing Homophobia in Primary Schools. The No Outsiders Project Team, $29.95

Primary teachers tell the story of how they have challenged the taken-for-granted norms and silences in primary schools around sexual orientation and gender expression. These norms and silences have left lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families marginalized, unrepresented and subject to multiple discrimination, and have allowed embedded homophobia and transphobia to go largely unchallenged. Working within and beyond the curriculum, teachers have broken boundaries in primary practice for sexualities and gender equality. This book shows it is not only through planned innovations and policy developments that change happens but also, and crucially, in the day-to-day moments where new thinking leads to new action for equality and social justice.
