— from the Foreword by Didi Khayatt, York University
Kumashiro has orchestrated a revealing and illuminating account of both the problematic and contested social, political, and educational issues that many gay and straight students and educators confront in schools and society. Each chapter author disrupts silences and gives voice to important facets of school and college life that oppress queer students, such as curriculum, pedagogy, climate, staff, and identity formation. Collectively, the chapters become a powerful tool for understanding intersections of race and sexuality, and the impact of this intersection in the daily lives of students and teachers.
— Carl A. Grant, Hoefs-Bascom Professor, University Wisconsin-Madison
This anthology of essays is not only a worth read, but as an exceptional text on inclusion, diversity and haunted silelnces, it is a highly desirable read for the educators and researchers among us who accept the challenge to cross these troubling intersections.
