What could have been an engaging and dynamic read felt sterile and clinical. There were very few suggestions about what we (teachers) can do about homophobia in school systems, and no acknowledgement about school cultures (specifically private schools and colleges) that are more liberal, where microaggressions are harder to identify. I wish this book offered lesson plans or a reading list for bringing non-heteronormative literacy into the classroom.

Blackburn, using current research, looks at homophobia and heterosexism in schools. Much of the book uses The Attic, a LGBTQQ youth center and its use of LGBTQQ reading and writing in an out of school context in the hopes of yielding agency and activism by developing programs such as speaker bureaus and support groups. Teacher awareness issues, developing student allies, GLBT Alliances, and teacher allies are also discussed.
