Recognizing Black LGBTQ  Students in Schools
February 2022
Joselyn L. Parker

This Equity Dispatch enumerates issues Black LGBTQ students experience being marked as Black and queer, in a white supremacist and hetero- cisnormative society. Next, it examines what queerness, homophobia, and transphobia looks like among Black youth, reflecting on the consequences of societal oppression for these youth. Finally, this piece offers recommendations for what teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders can do to disrupt homophobia and transphobia in their school environments.
