Special Issue:
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People and Education

"It's about changing the topic of sexual orientation from something seen as dirty and shameful to something that needs to be openly discussed in schools and other places where learning occurs."

--Schuyler Pisha, High School Student

The Harvard Educational Review has devoted this Special Issue to exploring the lives and experiences of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students and educators. We invite you to read about the realities of life for gay and lesbian teachers and students, including honest and thought-provoking essays by and about gay and lesbian youth; how an openly lesbian teacher has made a difference in her classroom; and students' responses to class lessons that focus on the prejudices that gay and lesbian people suffer. A growing body of knowledge is being developed in gay and lesbian studies, and the Harvard Educational Review is proud to contribute this Special Issue specifically devoted to education.
