It is critical to create safer spaces for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ). At the same time, lesbian and gay parents are increasingly represented in our schools. While values differ regarding homosexuality, all educators agree that respect and safety are qualities that are needed in our schools. This course is intended to help educators develop the awareness, background knowledge, and skills to create safer spaces for all the students regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
