Reviews

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2018

“This timely book is a splendid addition to the literature aimed at informing and guiding educators in supporting trans* individuals … . The editor … has gathered a talented group of knowledgeable contributors who collectively provide a rich mix of theory and practice.  … the book would be of great benefit within any teacher education program, especially now when trans* rights and safety are under fire in so many quarters.” (H. M. Miller, Choice, Vol. 55 (5), January, 2018)

“This edited collection is a great resource for pre-service and in-service teachers, as well as teacher educators and community activists that work with youth. … the authors also do a good job at addressing possible scenarios and providing concrete implications for practitioners making it an important and novel contribution to the field of LGBT youth studies.” (Mario I. Suárez, Journal of LGBT Youth, Vol. 15, February, 2018)
