Toward a More Inclusive Multicultural Education: Methods for Including LGBT Themes in K-12 Classrooms

Abstract: 

Although multicultural education scholars and the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) have encouraged the implementation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender themes in the classroom (NAME, 2005), many classroom educators look the other way because of fear, retaliation, or personal discomfort. The following article will provide some basic background on the topic of sexual orientation in the multicultural education classroom and provide some strategies for implementation.
