Pride & Progress began as a podcast created to amplify the voices of LGBT+ educators and allies.  This book builds upon the podcast’s success to create an essential guide for teachers and educators who want to make their educational spaces LGBT+ inclusive.
The book combines academic theory and the lived experiences of our guests to explore ten key themes. Each chapter explores one of these themes, providing the knowledge, language and strategies that schools need to make their educational spaces inclusive for all.

 
LGBT+ history (section 28)
 
Heteronormativity
 
Cisnormativity
 
Representation and visibility
 
Professional identity
 
Community
 
Curriculum
 
Intersectionality
 
Leadership
 
Allyship
