Overview

Written by and for gay and straight educators, The Gay Teen explores gay student adolescence from discursive, practical and theoretical perspectives. The volume introduces and sensitizes educators to the complexities of gay identity and sets forth some of the isses facing gay youth in high schools. Contributors survey "gay-friendly" curricula in a number of subject areas, including literature, sex education, sports and social studies. Vital teaching strategies, intervention techniques and staff training recommendations form an integral part of the analyses and are designed to help teachers and counsellors better address the academic and psychological needs of gay students and redress homophobia in the school setting. The Gay Teen also showcases the pioneering safe spaces that educators have created for students—gay as well as straight—who are struggling to forge sexual identities during the tough years of adolescence.

The book The Gay Teen edited by G. Unks is one of the most informative and best written sources for information relating to GLBT youth and education today. As a gay male studying for my degree in Secondary Education, this book has helped me understand what is going on now, what we need to do and how what is and isn't being done is shaping the lives of GLBT youth everywhere. Contributors to the book such as Arthur Lipkin provide information and views on gay curriculum in public schools. This book is one of the BEST I have purchased for personal and research use. Anyone who is an educator, administrator, counselor or teacher to be should read this book, then pass it on.
