Writing from a variety of perspectives, the contributors to this anthology share strategies for incorporating sexual diversity into multicultural teacher education. The 19 essays, written by teachers and teacher educators, include personal accounts, theoretical analyses, and hands-on approaches that will prepare future teachers to confront homophobia and help them welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, along with children of gay families, into their schools and classrooms.
