About this product
- DescriptionA new collection that addresses the problematic pathologization of queer youth, this book argues that the majority of educators and youth workers still kw little about queer youth's negotiations of identity and community. The contributors examine the dangerous effects of heterormalizing practices, and look at how young people negotiate labels and stereotypes in and out of school settings. What makes this project unique is that the contributors go beyond the discussions of homophobia young people experience on an everyday basis - the look at how youth subvert these experiences into those of pleasure, power, and confidence. In addition, the contributors look at how youth organize communities and negotiate positive identities in different settings.
