About the Author:

Arthur Lipkin, an associate editor of the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Issues in Education, is a former instructor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He directed the Safe Colleges Program of the Massachusetts Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth and taught in the Cambridge Public Schools for twenty years. He is also the author of Understanding Homosexuality, Changing Schools (1999).

Review:

A highly informative guide in Q&A format that provides advice to educators on working with sexual-minority youth and improving the learning climate of schools. The book itself is highly readable, while the appendixes and promised index make it a handy reference worth keeping long after reading it cover to cover. Middle-school through college educators, parents, students, and school board members will all find this valuable. Recommended for all libraries and education collections.... (Library Journal)

If every teacher, physician, and mental health professional were to read this book, tens of thousands of children would be happier, safer, and better prepared for productive adult life. Arthur Lipkin's good sense, humane vision, and long experience resonate through every answer to the most important questions about children's emerging sexualities. (Eli H. Newberger, M.D., Harvard Medical School, author of The Men They Will Become)

At last! A lucidly argued case and clearly written manual to launch the difficult but necessary project of bringing antigay prejudice educational programming into our public schools. This book offers a roadmap to guide educators to a future where schoolhouse and schoolyard bullying are exceptions, not norms, of student behavior. All the hate crimes laws in the world cannot prevent bias violence and harassment of those who exercise the freedom to differ. Prevention requires education and education requires action. Let's get to it! (Sue Hyde, director, Creating Change Conference, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force)

Homophobia is, these days, the most ingrained American prejudice. Yet the more education a person has, the less likely he or she is to be homophobic. Schools are also places where different people meet and learn about each other. It seems sensible, then, to work on these issues deeply and carefully while still at school. Arthur Lipkin's new book, which presents important questions and informed answers, shows how it can be done. (Nancy Faust Sizer, Harvard Graduate School of Education)

The book is an excellent resource for teachers, counselors, and administrators who want to become better informed about issues related to LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered] students and teachers and who want to discover ways to create effective school reform. (Teachers College Record)

An essential guide for educators and policymakers who want to understand and affirm sexuality differences. Written in a question and answer format, this book includes a masterful presentation of research and practice suggestions for principals, counselors, teachers, and parents. (Rethinking Schools)

A highly informative guide in Q&A format that provides advice to educators on working with sexual-minority youth and improving the learning climate of schools. The book itself is highly readable, while the appendixes and promised index make it a handy reference worth keeping long after reading it cover to cover. Middle-school through college educators, parents, students, and school board members will all find this valuable. Recommended for all libraries and education collections. (Library Journal)

School counselors and others interested in making the school environment receptive and nurturing to all kinds of children are likely to find this book useful. Students, teachers, and school personnel, whether gay or straight, are likely to find the book informs and offers hope. Families, especially those with GLBT children, will find a reassuring, knowledgeable voice in Lipkin. Counselor educators could use this book as a secondary text in a diversity course to offer students a blueprint for initiating change into community organizations of all types. (Counseling Today)

This is a handbook for teachers, counselors, administrators, policymakers, parents, and students who want to understand and affirm sexuality differences; promote and protect all students' well-being; and reduce bigotry, self-hatred, and violence. (Education Digest)

This is a valuable resource for teachers and school counselors who want to adopt a positive attitude to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, and other sexual minority students. Beyond Diversity Day will be very useful for those who want to help students who are questioning their sexuality or know that they are not heterosexual. (Metapsychology Online)
