How should we be supporting queer and trans students? All schools and school districts are dealing with this issue, both at a policy level and in individual classrooms. How do we encourage a school culture that respects the spectrum of sexuality and gender? How do we respond to community backlash when it occurs? The role of sex education and the renewed controversy over sex ed in some provinces can be explored, looking beyond the rhetoric to focus on what the research says, as well as specific programs to address homophobia, misogyny, sexism and consent. What does the research tell us about sex education, gender-related bullying, and LGBTQ students, and how can that translate into good practice? What are the barriers to overcome?
