Over the years I have written a number of posts about the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) education.
This includes the campaign that I engaged in – largely unsuccessfully I might add – to ensure that the National Health & Physical Education Curriculum included LGBTI students, and provided content that was relevant to their needs.
I have also written about the issue of how LGBTI anti-discrimination laws around Australia fail to protect LGBTI students and teachers, and plan to write more on this subject during 2017.
The following are my main posts on the subject of LGBTI education, starting with the most recent:
