Summary

"The purpose of this collection of materials is multiple. I am very interested in the process of interviewing young people who identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender or intersex (GLBTI Young People or Queer Young people QYP) about their life experiences, particularly about their school experiences. Further, I am also interested in transcribing and editing these conversations and in making these available to as wide a readership as possible in order to support change. Broadly I am interested in doing these things primarily because it is my feeling, and it is reported in the literature, that school settings are not always experienced as safe or welcoming places if you identify as a QYP and secondly because I feel that making available the stories of QYP, and asking people to read these aloud, is a very strategic way to generate change."--Provided by publisher.
