British children’s diverse experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities in their families, communities, personal lives and schools were explored by researchers, practitioners, interest groups, policy makers and young people. They came together over 18 months until May 2007 and this book tells the stories that emerged.

The narrative and analysis opens a new arena for those working with children and presents: new ways of conceptualizing and overcoming homophobia and transphobia in educational settings; ideas about how to translate policy supporting sexualities equality into the experiences of children and their families; the voices of young LGBT people on their own experiences of childhood; and fresh insights for people who work with children and may not have considered the importance and implications of sexualities equality for children’s lives.

Contributors include Mark Jennett, author of Stand Up For Us, British government guidelines on challenging homophobia in schools; Stephen Whittle, trans activist and professor of equalities law; members of Lesbian and Gay Youth Manchester; members of the No Outsiders research team challenging homophobia in primary schools; Sue Sanders, co-chair of Schools Out and teacher David Watkins.

This is an important book for anyone living or working with children: parents, teachers, community workers, voluntary workers, and all those brought under the broad scope of children's services across the UK, and equivalent services elsewhere. It brings together the voices of people from many sectors that realize the urgency of addressing issues of sexualities equality as early as possible in young children's lives.

Review:

"This is a book that everyone working with children and young people should read. There is a balance of education, gender and sexualities. The messages for educationalists and practitioners are clear and positive in working towards inclusion of LGBT issues in education, and are balanced with academic investigation, evidence and discussion." -- Dave Clarke * Gender and Education, Volume 21, Issue 5, 2009 *
