Summary

This paper examines narratives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered youth who have not been silenced or disenfranchised and who have not felt powerless in the face of society's resentment and understanding of their lifestyle. Elements in school, at home, with the extended family networks, among peers, and particular interpersonal dynamics of the individual are scrutinized to uncover factors that contribute to their capacity to thrive. Based on this select group of youth, recommendations are offered for undoing homophobia and heterosexism in schools in order to make them inclusive settings where all people thrive. (EH)
